Clothesline Project Back In Grand Forks

The Clothesline Project is back in Grand Forks and on display at the Memorial Union at UND.

The Clothesline Project is back in Grand Forks and on display at the Memorial Union at UND.

Each shirt is made by a survivor of domestic violence and each color represents a different age range and death from domestic violence. The clothesline project started in October of 1995 and the UND Women's Center has brought the clothesline here every year for the past 15 years.

Each shirt is to tell the story of each survivor's experience.

"It's an issue that is, I think that it is seen as it doesn't happen here but it does and it brings awareness to the community that yes it does happen in our community," said Linsey Stadstad with the UND's Women's Center.

The clothesline project ends Friday at noon. There is a Take Back the Night March on Thursday night starting at seven in the UND Memorial Union Ballroom.
