The Clothesline Project

Each year, WILL* students transform the Boatwright Memorial Library lawn into a discussion forum on domestic violence. Those affected by domestic violence anonymously express their emotions and experiences on T-shirts, which are then hung on a clothesline to educate the campus community.

Coordinated by WILL* students, the Clothesline Project is part of a national educational effort. It spreads awareness about the prevalence of domestic violence and creates a visible display on campus that strengthens the community’s commitment to eradicating violence.
