The Clothesline Project Display

In Honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month


The Commons : Breezway

Date & Time

April 16, 2024, 9:30 am4:00 pm


Students, faculty, and staff have made t-shirts describing their experience with sexual assault and relationship violence. In recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, on Tuesday, April 16th, 2024 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 16th so it can be included in the display. Supplies will be available throughout April 1st to April 17th in the Women's Center and shirts made on or after April 9th will be included in future displays including Intimate Partner Violence Awareness Month, October 2024.

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!
