This statewide project presents shirts – displayed on a clothesline strung through the Pecan Court on campus – that personalize gender-based violence. The display is made by survivors of violence against women, including sexual assault and domestic violence. SEXplorations, a student organization, will sponsor a t-shirt making program on Friday evening. Students, staff, and faculty will be able to add their own shirts to the clothesline to either tell their own stories or those of women close to them.
