Annual Clothesline Project at Mars Hill University October 30


Mars Hill University’s Annual Clothesline Project will be held October 30, 2014, from 10 am – 2 pm in front of Pittman Dining Hall.  The Clothesline project educates people about and help them recognize the pervasive problem of domestic violence.  This event visibly promotes awareness by hanging decorated t-shirts on a clothesline.  Each t-shirt represents an individual who has experienced some type of domestic violence. Besides promoting awareness, the Clothesline Project serves as source of healing for those who have been directly affected by violence.  Persons who have been impacted by violence decorate a shirt which is hung on clotheslines set up on campus.  The Mars Hill University Clothesline Project is planned and promoted by the Women’s Studies Program.  All are welcome to stop by and see this powerful visual recognition of the victims of violence.
