The Clothesline Project returns to Bay College
ESCANABA — Bay College’s Diversity Committee is once again partnering with The Caring House of Iron Mountain and Tri-County Safe Harbor of Escanaba 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.
Anyone who has experienced such violence, at any time in their 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 Iron Mountain Campus in the Lower Commons from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10. In addition, staff from The Caring House will be present for anyone seeking resources or support.
Supplies to make shirts will be available on the Escanaba campus in Café Bay from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, Oct. 15. In addition, staff from Tri-County Safe Harbor will be present for anyone seeking resources or support.
Completed shirts will be displayed on the clothesline at both campuses. More information about the Clothesline Project can be found at http://clotheslineproject.info/about.html.
