WABI advances Clothesline Project recognizing Sexual Assault Awareness Month

WABI (Channel 5) advanced the Clothesline Project at the University of Maine, an installation on the Mall to recognize Sexual Assault Awareness Month, as part of a roundup of related events across the state. The project, a display of clothing created by survivors, is a collaboration with Bangor-based organizations Partners for Peace and Rape Response Services and is intended to raise awareness about the effects of sexual assault, WABI reported. The display will be up 11 a.m.–1 p.m. April 22–25. UMaine’s Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department and Student Life also are sponsors.
