2nd Annual Clothesline Project

April 09, 2012

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The Crisis Center, Inc. has
organized The 2nd Annual Clothesline Project to honor women who have been
affected by sexual and domestic violence. The Clothesline Project event will take place on April 14, 2012 from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m (Rain date April 15, 2012) at the State Street Mural, 810 State Street, Bristol, TN. The event will include awareness activities, music, food and much more.

The Clothesline Project works to create awareness about those issues. It
celebrates those that have survived and remembers those who lost their lives
due to such violence. The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts
designed by survivors and friends of victims of sexual and domestic
violence. The shirts hang side-by-side to "Break the Silence" and bear
witness to those experiences.
