Chatfield Students Participate in YWCA Clothes Line Project

October 13th, 2010 Chatfield Students Participate in YWCA Clothes Line Project

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and in recognition Chatfield College students are participating in the YWCA Clothes Line Project, a project to address violence against women where community members are encouraged to share their stories and support by decorating t-shirts to be hung in visible locations.

Chatfield alumna Cassandra Stroop, now the Sexual Assault and Intervention Coordinator for the YWCA, organized the event in order to bring the striking message back to her alma mater.  Stroop, who went on to receive her bachelor's degree in education and social work at the Union Institute University, assists in crisis intervention, support groups and hospital visits to women who experienced or are experiencing sexual abuse.

“I want to encourage students to speak out against violence and abuse against women. We allow students to lash out through creativity and show support for preventing domestic violence,” says Stroop.

Participants write their stories and accompany them with a visual representation on t-shirts. The Clothes Line Project serves several purposes.  It acts as an educational tool for both participants and those who pass by.  Creating the shirts serves as a healing tool, by hanging the tool on the line, survivors, friends and family are able to literally turn their backs on some of the pain of their experience and walk away. Lastly, the project acts as a voice for those suffering in silence and lets them know they are not alone.
