VA San Diego Healthcare System
The Clothesline Project
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.Â Â In an effort to raise awareness about Military Sexual TraumaÂ and its impact, VA San Diego Healthcare System is hosting a â€śClothesline Projectâ€ť on April 26 & 27, 2011.Â
The Clothesline Project is a visual display that allows survivors to â€śbreak the silenceâ€ť that often surrounds these experiences. Survivors share their stories by decorating a shirt or piece of their military uniform in a way that reflects the impact the sexual violence has had on their lives and their road to recovery.
VA San Diego Healthcare SystemÂ invites you to attend the Clothesline Project's Opening Ceremony andÂ Display Days:
Tuesday, April 26, 2011, 11:30 a.m.
Multipurpose RoomÂ (1st Floor of the La Jolla Medical Center)
April 26 & 27, 2011, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
