The Women's and Children's Alliance hosts the Clothesline Project every year in partnership with several organizations and Treasure Valley businesses during Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. Part of a national campaign, the project is a visual display of art created on T-shirts by survivors of physical, sexual and emotional violence to express their stories of abuse and survival.
Check out our calendar of events for the details about the Clothesline Project and all the activities for Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
