The Clothesline Project is a display of shirts with messages and illustrations that represent those who have died at the hands of someone who claimed to have loved them. Each shirt provides evidence that domestic and sexual violence exists in our communities as well as depicting a visual reminder of these often-ignored statistics. Shirts for the Winona Project represent those who have died in Minnesota within the last year.

“The mission of The Clothesline Project is to educate students and the community that violence is a problem everywhere, help is available, there is hope and a path to healing” (“The Clothesline Project: Mission Statement”).
