The Clothesline Project on display at BSC

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - The Clothesline Project is a display of t-shirts created by survivors of violence or in honor of someone who experienced domestic or sexual violence.

The project started in Massachusetts in 1990. Each color shirt represents a different type of violence.

Most of the shirts at BSC are blue or green; representing women who are survivors of incest or child abuse.

“I think the message that is most important to give survivors is that they are loved, they are cared for, and people are willing to listen,” said Daniel Rogers, former BSC professor.

You can find the display outside of the Sidney J. Lee Auditorium in Schafer Hall at Bismarck State College.
