Library Happenings: Chapman Clothesline Project

The Chapman University campus was covered in multi-colored t-shirts this week as part of a sexual assault and sexual violence awareness campus. The t-shirts have all been made by Chapman students over a number of years and the goal is to show how prevalent sexual assault and violence is within the population. Each t-shirt color symbolizes a different type of trauma.

The goal of the project is to provide support for survivors of sexual violence in knowing that they are not alone and that they can overcome the trauma that has been inflicted upon them. It is a very powerful visual project.
