The Clothesline Project Program/Itinerary
WISE (Women's Issues Support and Empowerment) is presenting a program tied to
their "Clothesline Project" which features a visual display of t-shirts decorated by women who have had violence against them or their
friends and family. The program is set for Tuesday, April 4 from 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. on the TMB front lawn. The program consists of
nine segments with speakers presenting a different segment every hour.
The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program 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.
The itinerary for the "Clothesline Project" program follows:
