Live Violence Free hosts T-shirt-making workshops

Live Violence Free will host three T-shirt-making workshops for the community.

The project, called the Clothesline Project, is meant to honor victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. The workshops will culminate in a visual display of T-shirts with messages or illustrations designed by survivors of violence or supporters of non-violence. The purpose of the project is to increase awareness of the impact of domestic violence, celebrate the strength of survivors, and encourage victims to break the silence and find the help that they deserve, a press release stated.

Live Violence Free will provide materials for the workshops, which will be held on April 11 from 9 a.m. to noon, April 19 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and April 24, Denim Day, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Participants are encouraged to attend one of the group shirt-making workshops or to make a shirt on their own and bring it to Live Violence Free anytime before April 29 so that it can be included in the display. T-shirts can be returned to their creators after the display is exhibited.
