Event information

The Five College Clothesline Project Display

9:00 am - 5:00 pm Outside Between Williston & the Octagon

Join the Peer Advocates for Sexual Respect for the Five College Clothesline Project Display on Friday, October 16, from 9 AM-5 PM (rain date: Oct. 23) on the green between Williston Hall and the Octagon.

The Clothesline Project is a part of a national project to break the silence around sexual violence by providing space for people to create shirts that give voice to personal experience(s). The shirts are then hung shoulder to shoulder on a clothesline for public viewing. The 5-College Clothesline 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 so we encourage you to take care of yourself. Resources, giveaways, activities, and refreshments provided.

Please refer to the Peer Advocates' social media pages for up-to-date information re. inclement weather (Facebook: @peeradvocatesamherstcollege | Instagram: @amherst_pa).
