On October 18 (9 a.m.-7 p.m.) and October 19 (9 a.m.-2 p.m.), the Peer Advocates of Sexual Respect will be displaying the Five College Clothesline Project on the Valentine Quad. (Content Warning: Sexual Violence).
The Five College Clothesline Project is an opportunity to break the silence about sexual violence by providing space for people to create shirts that give voice to personal experiences. The shirts are then hung shoulder to shoulder on a clothesline for public viewing. The goals of the project are:
· To bear witness to victims and survivors of violence.
· To aid and support in the healing process of those who have lost a loved one or who have themselves been victims/survivors of violence.
· To break the silence and unite people in a demonstration of solidarity against physical, verbal, sexual and psychological abuse.
The Five College Project has over 800 shirts that have been created by survivors, as well as friends and family members of survivors. We embrace the clothesline as a healing and emotional tool for people of all genders. We recognize this project can be a crucial and much needed part of an individual healing process.
We also recognize that seeing the Clothesline can be difficult, if you want to avoid the Clothesline Project display we encourage people to use the Route 9 entrance of Valentine. We will also hang shirts so only the blank side is facing the entrance to Morrow Residence Hall and the Morrow path will remain clear.
Please stop by and greet the Peer Advocates tables in front of Val. The self-care table will have self care tips and giveaways. We will also have a table with lots of information on how you can start thinking and doing things to change the culture and to create a safer more respectful community. Add to our wall by sharing the one thing you will do to help us change the culture to end sexual violence.
