  • Herkimer County Community College will host the Domestic Violence Awareness program on campus, and will make T-shirts for the Clothesline Project and provide information to students, staff and the community.
    The T-shirt making and information table will be open on Tuesday, Oct. 8 and Oct. 15, from 12 to 2 p.m. in the McLaughlin College Center Lobby.
    The Clothesline Project will be displayed Monday through Wednesday, Oct. 21 to 23, in the McLaughlin College Center around the staircase. The Clothesline Project is a program started on Cape Cod, Mass., in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. The shirts are then hung on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. With the support of many, it has since spread worl-wide. By bringing the event to Herkimer County, survivors are helped to connect and heal together.
    The college and community are invited to attend the Clothesline Project free of charge.
