Clothesline Project increases abuse awareness with T-shirts
Cougar Peer Educators and the UH Wellness Center will provide an arena for victims of domestic violence to seek help from their abusive pasts from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at the University Center Satellite Patio.
The Clothesline Project Fall 2008 provides students, faculty and staff members an opportunity to make a T-shirt to represent their personal struggles with domestic violence or those of a friend or loved one and display them on a clothesline in honor of mental and emotional health.
The silent awareness event is held annually by the University organizations. In addition to paint supplies and T-shirts, the groups will also provide informational packets on ways to cope with domestic abuse for attendees.
Cougar Peer Educators promote mental and physical health and advocate six dimensions of personal health: social, intellectual, occupational, spiritual, environmental and emotional health.
