The Clothesline Project will be featured at Hancock College through the end of the week, to raise awareness of sexual assault and violence against women. 

The display, hanging in the commons area, promotes healing, awareness and solidarity during National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Organizers hope it will help women affected find a safety net and serve as an opportunity for people if they feel the need to ask for help. 

"I think that students appreciate having these visual reminders that we need to protect one another and support students," said Alex Dejounge, Allan Hancock College coordinator for Student & Health Services. 

Students and staff were encouraged to decorate shirts with their thoughts. 

The project has been going on for at least four years.
