Clothesline Project

Students and staff spread encouraging messages to survivors of domestic abuse for the Clothesline Project in Rocky Young Park at Pierce College. Associated Student Organization hosted the event to raise awareness of domestic violence and to inspire community members who have been affected by abuse. Participants wrote on colorful shirts to recognize survivors, and some wrote about their experience surviving abuse. Each color represented a different type of domestic violence and the various ways it affects survivors, family and friends. Participants hung their personalized shirts on clotheslines around the park for people to walk around and read the messages.
