Come view the Clothesline Project at TC3 on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday this week!
The mission of The Clothesline Project is to educate students and the community that violence is a problem everywhere, that help is available, and there is hope and a path to healing. The shirts that will be displayed were created by locals. These shirts are a visual reminder that domestic and sexual violence exist in our communities. This project provides survivors with a venue to courageously break the silence and make their communities aware of their experiences.
This Bringing in the Bystander event is open for all Ithaca College Students. SLIs will be given credit for attending.
The TC3 community will come together to show support for survivors and call for an end to sexual assault, rape, child sexual abuse, and intimate partner violence.
No one should fear the night... or the day. Shatter the Silence. Stop the Violence.
Take Back the Night is an event that brings together our community including the local campuses, youth and organizations to march, rally and speak out against sexual and domestic violence. The Advocacy Center organizes a collective of individuals that help shape and coordinate all aspects of the event.
