The Clothesline Project is a national program that addresses violence against women. Some local students brought that initiative to Meridian.
Shirt making event was held at MSU Meridian for women to express their emotions by designing a shirt. People also chose to design shirts on their own. The project helps with the healing process and also raises awareness of violence against women.
"You have so many women who are afraid to come up and admit that they have been abused, and they don't know how to cope with it and it has taken over their lives and they don't know how to live," says Latonya Taylor, a student.
The t-shirts will be displayed next Saturday in the MSU Meridian courtyard from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Anyone is encouraged to create a shirt to bring and hang it on the clothesline.
