If weather does not permit the art installation will be moved to May 12th. NFHC and other social service agencies will be present to provide resources for survivors and information on healthy relationships and violence prevention.

The Clothesline Project was started in 1990 when it was discovered almost as many women died during the Vietnam War at the hands of their intimate partners as did American men fighting in the war. It has been a national campaign in April ever since. Visit to learn more. “Hanging our dirty laundry out—We are no longer silent!”
