The Clothesline Project is a visual display of T-Shirts hung on clotheslines that bear witness to the effects of violence in our society. Each shirt represents a particular adult or child’s experience and is color coded and decorated by the survivor or by a family member or friend.

Take Back the Night Rally is set for Monday, Oct. 9, at 7 p.m. in the Memorial Union Ballroom. Take Back the Night is a rally to promote public awareness of interpersonal violence. Help us take a stand against domestic violence and sexual assault. This is an issue that affects everyone, not just women. Come support the cause. Everyone is invited to join.
