Clothesline Project at Univ. of Mary

Posted: Updated:

Rows of hand decorated T-shirts are strung up at the University of Mary to raise awareness about violence against women and children in our community.

The North Dakota Council on Abused Women's Services teamed up with U-Mary students to put together this "Clothesline Project."

In all there are 230 T-shirts on display, each color representing something different.

Some of the shirts honor those who lost their lives to violence, others were created by victims who want to share their stories.

"The importance of the display is to raise awareness about violence and also it is a healing process for a lot of victims and survivors of violence to make shirts. It gives them an outlet for the violence. "Dana Mees Administrative and Technology Coordinator at CAUS North Dakota said.

"One of the most miraculous things is many of these shirts talk about forgiveness and when something that horrible happens and it becomes such a part of you and just being able to release that and forgive that person. It just shows strength and it shows courage," University of Mary student Mari Bauman said.

The project is on display in the "Our Lady of the Annunciation" Chapel in the Benedictine Center until Friday.
