Invitation to Clothesline Project

| April 25, 2016

On behalf of Northland Family Help Center, they would like to inform you of and invite you to have a presence at two major events in the upcoming month. On April 29th, they will be hosting the Clothesline Project from 7 AM to 5 PM at Heritage Square and Youthfest from 5 PM to 9 PM at The Hive (2 S. Beaver St. Suite 190–located on Phoenix Ave. next to Higher Grounds Coffee Shop). They are looking for agencies interested in tabling at and participating in these events.

 

The Clothesline Project is an awareness campaign for sexual assault and domestic violence survivors. The display consists of many clotheslines of T-shirts painted by survivors as a means of expression of their experience. This year, they will also include two workshops on violence prevention during the display. “Hanging our dirty laundry and experiences out to be seen and heard—We are no longer silent!”

Youthfest is a celebration of youth with youth performers, live music, workshops, activities, and resources for youth and families. This is an annual event, in honor of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, organized by their Runaway and Homeless Youth Outreach Program.
