College students in Columbus will pause from regular routines today to raise awareness about the danger of domestic violence during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Harrison College will host its 11th Clothesline Project from 1 to 1:30 p.m. on the front lawn of the college, 2222 Poshard Drive, where T-shirts on clothes lines will bear the names of people who died in domestic violence incidents over a year’s time in Indiana. Some domestic violence victims, as well as representatives from Turning Point Domestic Violence Services of Columbus, will speak. Information: Katrina Coryell at Katrina.Coryell@harrison.edu or 812-669-0954.
On the IUPUC campus at 4601 Central Ave., a different clothesline display will appear on the Serengeti Lawn from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today. Color-specific shirts will represent the various types of abuse in a display created by members of the Feminism Club and Office for Women extension, intending to send messages of hope and encouragement to survivors.
