The Clothesline Project Display

In Honor of UMBC's Sexual Assault Awareness Month


The Commons : Mainstreet

Date & Time

April 5, 2023, 10:00 am4:00 pm


Students, faculty, and staff have made t-shirts describing their experience with sexual assault and relationship violence. In recognition of UMBC's Sexual Assault Awareness Month, on Wednesday, April 5th, 2023 these t-shirts will be hung shoulder-to-shoulder on a clothesline for public viewing, as if the survivors are there themselves, telling us their stories.

The Clothesline Project gives voice to the experiences of survivors, victims, family, and friends who have been affected by violence. All are encouraged to attend and participate.

UMBC community members impacted by interpersonal violence are encouraged to make a t-shirt for the display prior to April 5th so it can be included in the April display. Supplies will be available throughout all of April in the Women's Center and shirts made on or after April 5th will be included in future displays including Take Back the Night 2023 and an October display for Relationship Violence Awareness Month. 

UMBC community members interested in volunteering for this event are encouraged to email the Women's Center at womenscenter@umbc.edu. Setting up the project takes lots of hands so volunteers are greatly appreciated!
