October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month:

Red Flag Campaign
Dating violence happens in 1 out of 5 college relationships. Sometimes it takes a friend to see that a relationship is unhealthy. Speak Up When You See A Red Flag.  Learn more at www.theredflagcampaign.org.

Clothesline Project
The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It honors female survivors as well as victims of intimate personal violence such as rape, battering, incest and child sexual abuse.  The clothesline project provides a powerful step towards helping a survivor break through the shroud of silence that has surrounded her experience.

The clothesline is hung on the first floor of the Downtown Campus, first floor of Burnette Hall at the Parham Road campus and main building at the Goochland Campus. Some shirts were designed by Reynolds students and some share facts about violence.

For more information visit www.clotheslineproject.org. This project was brought to you by the Office of Student Life at Reynolds. Contact us at 523-5983 or 523-5082 or studentlife@reynolds.edu with comments or questions.
