Events Schedule:

The Closthesline Project
Tuesday, October 24-Thursday, October 26, Cafe Bay, 10am-2pm

Did you know that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month? Stop by Bay Cafe in Escanaba or The Atrium at Bay West to decorate a shirt to hang as part of The Clothesline Project. The first Clothesline Project took place in October of 1990, with 31 shirts being displayed in Hyannis, Massachusetts. Since that time the Clothesline Project has grown to over 500 projects nationally, with an estimated 50000-60000 shirts displayed.

The Clothesline Project honors women who have survived or been the victims of intimate violence. Any woman who has experienced such violence, at any time in her life, is encouraged to design a shirt. Victim and Survivors’ families and friends are also invited to participate.

The Clothesline Project defines “Survivors” and “Victims” in the following way:
Survivor = a woman who has survived intimate personal violence such as rape, battering, incest, or child sex abuse
Victim = a woman who has died at the hands of her abuser

Representatives from Tri-County Safe Harbor and The Caring House will be available during program times to share local resources.
