WRC News: Clothesline Project, Thursday, March 13, 2014
The Central Florida Women’s Resource (WRC) is once again
sponsoring the Clothesline Project and this year’s display will
be on March 13th during the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event benefiting Harbor House.
. You can find us behind Wall Street Plaza in front of the Orlando History Center at the end of the walk. The walk begins at 5:00pm at the Orange County Courthouse west entrance courtyard.
EEach year T-shirts are displayed on clotheslines at
various locations, each shirt giving silent testimony to a woman
who has been a victim of violence. It is a vehicle for women
affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a
shirt. We then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by
others as testimony to the problem of violence against women.
The purpose of the project is four-fold:
To bear witness to survivors and victims of domestic violence.
To help with the healing process for people who have lost a loved
one or are survivors.
To educate, document, and raise society's awareness of the issue.
To provide a nationwide network of support, encouragement and
information for other communities starting their own Clothesline
Projects. Please join us to pay tribute to those women who have
either been a victim or lost their lives due to violence.
