The Five College Clothesline Project Display

October 21, 2021 (All day) to October 22, 2021 (All day) (already occurred)

Join Health Education and the Peer Advocates for Sexual Respect for the Five College Clothesline Project display on Thursday, Oct. 21, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday, Oct. 22, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the First-Year Quad.

The Clothesline Project is a public display meant to break the silence around sexual violence and give voice to personal experience(s). The Five 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 will be provided.
