The Clothesline Project is a T-shirt display that is a voice for domestic violence survivors. The shirts include graphic messages & illustrations that have been designed by women survivors of violence, by their friends or families. The Clothesline may also contain shirts made to honor women who have died as a result of violence.
A group of Waterbury PeaceJammers presented their project at the Northeast PeaceJam Conference. They also got to meet the Nobel Peace Laureate who inspired their project, Shirin Ebadi. Shirin was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2003 for her efforts for democracy, peace, and women's rights in the Middle East.
