Virtual Clothesline Project
Every year the College holds an Annual Clothesline Project in April as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Due to COVID, a face-to-face event is not possible, but thanks to the help of Social Work Students in the undergraduate program, we would like to extend an invitation to a Virtual Clothesline Event.
Undergraduate Social Work students demonstrate their generalist practice skills within larger systems by creating a Virtual Clothesline Project for their Macro Social Work Practice class.
You can access the Virtual Clothesline Project (VCLP) online.
The mission of the VCLP is
- To bear witness to the survivors as well as the victims of sexual, gender-based, power-based, and intimate partner violence.
- To recognize and analyze the ways in which prevention and response services uphold the systematic oppression of those who often have their voices erased or silenced.
- To help with the healing process for people who have lost a loved one or who are survivors of this violence.
- To educate, document, and raise society’s awareness of the extent of the problem of violence against people of all genders.
- To provide a nationwide network of support, encouragement, and information for other communities starting their own Clothesline Projects.
