April: Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and LACASA is hosting a variety of awareness building and fundraising activities.

Our Clothesline Project begins April 1. T-shirts created by survivors and supports will be displayed in libraries and retail stores throughout Livingston County to raise awareness about the impact of sexual assault.

Green ribbons will decorate lampposts in downtown Brighton, Howell and Pinckeny as part of our Green Ribbon Campaign. Green is the cause color for sexual assault awareness.

A special Scavenger Hunt will be held at Tanger Outlet Center throughout April as part of the clothesline project. Participants can enter to win a $100 Tanger gift card. Entry cards may be picked up at Tanger’s Shopper Services in the Tanger Food Court.

The scavenger hunt coincides with LACASA’s Walk a Mile in Her Shoes fundraising event slated for Saturday, April 21. Registration for the walk begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Tanger Food Court. Supporters can cheer on their walkers and shoppers may search for T-shirt clues at participating Tanger stores.

LACASA’s 14th Annual Clothesline Project represents a collective effort to end interpersonal violence.

T-shirt Galleries are on display at:

  • Brighton Area District Library
  • Fowlerville District Library
  • Hamburg Township Library
  • Hartland Cromaine Library
  • Howell District Library
  • Pinckney Community Library
  • Tanger Outlet Center (participating stores)
