HHS Hosts “The Clothesline Project”

April 19 | 8:30 am-1:30 pm

Clothesline Project

Huntley High School will host “The Clothesline Project,” a sexual abuse and sexual assault awareness event associated with Erin’s Law on Thursday, April 19, from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in the Commons.

The Clothesline Project is a display of t-shirts made by survivors of sexual abuse and assault, or in honor of survivors of sexual violence. The t-shirts contain personal expressions of the survivors’ experiences and are intended to break the silence surrounding sexual violence. Students will have an opportunity to create t-shirts to contribute to the display.

Social workers and counselors, as well as a community educator from McHenry County, will be on hand to provide assistance and support to students.

The event also will raise awareness for resources available to survivors of sexual violence, including:

Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network
