April 2016

LACASA hosts the Clothesline Project every April as part of National Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Survivors hang shirts on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of interpersonal violence. With the support of many, the Clothesline Project has spread world-wide.

LACASA's Clothesline Project promotes awareness about the impact of abuse and sexual assault on victims, their families and the community.

T-shirts created by local survivors — as well as their families and friends — are displayed at LACASA and at libraries throughout Livingston County.

About the National Clothesline Project

The Clothesline Project (CLP) started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 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.
