Bay College’s Diversity Committee is once again partnering with Tri-County Safe Harbor (Escanaba) and The Caring House (Iron Mountain) to bring The Clothesline Project to both Bay College campuses. 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. Through this project, victims are able to decorate a t-shirt as a vehicle to express their stories, emotions, and testimonies against domestic violence.
Supplies to make shirts will be available on the Escanaba campus in Café Bay from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, October 17th
. In addition, staff from Tri-County Safe Harbor will be present for anyone seeking resources or support.
Supplies to make shirts will be available on the Iron Mountain Campus in the Lower Commons from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. CST on Thursday, October 19th
. In addition, staff from The Caring House will be present for anyone seeking resources or support.
Completed shirts will be displayed on the clothesline on both campuses. More information about the Clothesline Project can be found at http://clotheslineproject.info/about.html
