Rising above the abuse

The annual Clothesline Project returned to Pierce College on Oct. 17, 2018, to spread awareness about domestic abuse.

According to the Clothesline Project, their mission statement “is to educate students and the community that violence is a problem everywhere, help is available, there is hope and a path to healing.”

Multi-colored shirts were hung on a clothesline at Rocky Young Park, which allowed students to participate in the event.

Survivors, anyone who has lost someone to domestic abuse or knows a victim decorated shirts to share their story. Some wrote positive messages and others recounted their full experience.

The event was sponsored by the Associated Student Organization (ASO) and the Pierce College Diversity Committee. Also in partnership with the LAPC Bystander Awareness Initiative and the Brahmas Responding and Action with Voices through Empowerment (B.R.A.V.E), the event helped raise awareness about domestic violence.
