Safe Haven's Clothesline Project at Corner Park

Safe Haven's Clothesline Project at Corner Park

The month of April is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, “On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.”

Kristina Clady, the Outreach and Prevention Coordinator of Rape Crisis Domestic Violence at Safe Haven speaks out, “In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, RCDV, Safe Haven will be sponsoring The Clothesline Project, at Corner Park in Ashland, from April 21-28.

The goal of the Clothesline Project is to honor those affected by sexual violence and show support to survivors in our community. Every t-shirt displayed was created by a survivor or ally in Ashland County.

Sexual violence can often make victims feel powerless. By participating in this display, survivors have a chance to take back their voice and tell their story on their own terms.

The goal of this project is to increase awareness of sexual and domestic violence in the Ashland community and surrounding areas.”


If you have been affected by rape or domestic violence, I hope you will be encouraged by this, to reach out to someone and tell your story. Kristina Clady Outreach and Prevention Coordinator of RCDV Safe Haven can be reached at 419.282.6097.
