The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. With the support of many, it has since spread world-wide.
We will be organizing a Clothesline Project during “North Bay/Petaluma Rises!“. Decorated shirts will be strung on the walls of our venue for “The Vagina Monologues” as well as at future events of Guided To Safety.
If you have t-shirts or indelible markers you’d like to donate, please contact us at GuidedToSafety@gmail.com
