NOVA Clothesline Project Brings Awareness to Sexual Assault

NOVA Clothesline Project Brings Awareness to Sexual Assault

On April 11 and 12, NOVA Sexual Assault Services (SAS) visited the Alexandria Campus for the Clothesline Project. The Clothesline Project raises awareness of the impact of sexual assault and domestic violence. Shirts are created for display to show support for victims of sexual violence. Staff, students and community members were invited to create shirts to show support for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. NOVA SAS hopes to raise awareness on the issue of domestic violence, rape, sexual assault and dating/partner violence.

NOVA Clothesline Project Brings Awareness to Sexual AssaultFor two days, members of the Alexandria Campus community created several unique and supportive messages on T-shirts. Students have created extraordinary shirts with empowering statements such as “Walk a mile in her shoes,” and “Boys will not be boys, but be held accountable for their actions!” The turnout for the Clothesline Project at the Alexandria Campus was amazing; over 30 shirts were created.
