As I meandered through the quad on the last week of April I came across a small group of students and Joaquin Feliciano, Greek Life Coordinator, hanging numerous t-shirts on a clothesline in between trees. Joaquin informed that the Clothesline Project was a weeklong event put on to raise awareness of violence against women.
Every April (Sexual Assault Awareness Month) the Clothesline Project is organized by the Greek Life Office along with Kappa Alpha Theta, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Kappa Psi Epsilon, Sigma Omega Nu, Alpha Pi Sigma, Sigma Alpha Zeta, Sigma Alpha Epsilon Pi,& Phi Kappa Psi. During this week, the biggest event they host is “Take Back the Night!”, which is an evening event held to “support the survivors of violence, help those in pain, and assert that it is wrong for people to live in fear of the night or any time of day”.
The shirts hung on the line were decorated by survivors, friends and loved one’s of women that have been abused, or by anyone who wanted to support the cause. Throughout the day people on the quad were welcome to decorate a shirt and hang it on the line.
