Clothesline Display at Spanish Action League

Apr 5, 2019 to Apr 30, 2019 Location: 700 Oswego St, Syracuse

A Clothesline Project display will be hosted at the Spanish Action League throughout the month of April. The display is available to view Monday - Friday from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm and is free and open to the public. Vera House representatives will be available at the display for support and information.

The Clothesline Display is presented annually in April in conjunction with Sexual Assault Awareness Month and pays tribute to the strength and courage of the men, women and children who are survivors of sexual assault and abuse. Individuals use this opportunity to express themselves through words and art design on a shirt that bears
their powerful individual messages highlighting assault and violence as a community problem.

The shirts are displayed together publicly on clotheslines, forming a powerful statement of solidarity for ALL survivors and supporters. The project offers anyone, regardless of race, gender identity, sexuality, age, religion, nationality, ability, or experience with violence, to express themselves artistically on shirts.

To make a shirt or get involved, call us at (315) 425-0818 or email info@verahouse.org.
