The Clothesline Project
The Clothesline Project is a powerful visual display of T-shirts decorated by survivors of violence or their loved ones. This national movement seeks to raise awareness about domestic and sexual violence while giving a voice to those affected.
To mark the beginning of Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2022, we had a display of shirts at the Poughkeepsie Galleria on October 1st from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm. During this time, victims and survivors had the opportunity to make their own shirt to display.
In 2021, Shirts were on display all month at the New York State Police Troop K headquarters in Salt Point and the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office in Poughkeepsie.
Content Warning for shirts onsite: We Do NOT censor the shirts. Shirts may contain graphic language and content.
