Clothesline Project on display in the Student Union 4/1-4/12
In honor of April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we have chosen to display the Clothesline Project at Fort Lewis College. Modeled after a national inititiave to bring voice to violence against women, for the second year in a row we have chosen to focus on displaying t-shirts that shed light on the stories of sexual assault survivors and those who support them. These are their stories, and we hope that you will respect them and gain awareness from them. We hope that this reminds you that it's on us to be a part of the solution rather than a part of the problem when it comes to sexual assault, especially on a college campus.
For more on the national initiative, please visit www.clotheslineproject.org.
For more info on FLC's sexual assault programs and survivor resources, please visit www.fortlewis.edu/care. To anonymously report a sexual assault in any form, please visit www.fortlewis.edu/tellsomeone.
We recognize that this display can be emotionally intense. If you find yourself triggered or in emotional distress related to the Clothesline Project, please know that we are here to support you. You can contact the Counseling Center at 970-247-7212 or 260 Noble Hall. You can also reach out to our community's resource Sexual Assault Awareness Services Organization (SASO)'s hotline at 970-247-5400. We are so lucky to have both valuable resources.
Thank you for your support in this project. If you want to make a t-shirt, please get in touch with our Peer Support Office or call 970-247-7508. There is always room for one more story.
