WRC News: Clothesline Project, Saturday November 9th
The Central Florida Women’s Resource (WRC) is once
sponsoring the Clothesline Project and this year’s display will
be on November 9th during the It Takes Courage event hosted
by Harbor House in partnership with the Orlando Police
Department and Orange
County Sheriff’s Office. You can find us
at the Fashion Square Mall Panera
Bread entrance from 8:00am
until 1:00pm. Each 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
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
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.
