Survivors share their creative work to express themselves and to remind survivors that they are not alone.

Please visit LACASA Center or your area library to view a Clothesline Project display.

LACASA’s Community Education Department, directed by Nicole Matthews-Creech, spearheads the Clothesline Project each year. 

About the National Clothesline Project

The Clothesline Project (CLP) started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women.

It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt for public viewing.
