April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

In Honor

 Rochester VA Outpatient Clinic is Hosting the Clothesline Project

Displayed internationally the Clothesline Project is a testimonial of shirts created by those whose lives have been affected by MST (Military Sexual Trauma), intimate partner violence, sexual assault and abuse.  If you choose, your shirt will be displayed.

The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to violence and sexual assault.  During the public display, a clothesline is hung with shirts.  Each shirt is decorated to represent a particular Veteran’s experience, by the survivor.

The purpose of the project is four-fold.

  1. To bear witness to the survivors.
  2. To help with the healing process.
  3. To educate, document, and raise society’s awareness of the extent of the problem of sexual assault.
  4. To provide a nationwide network of support encouragement and information.
