If you happened to drive by or walk by the courtyard of MSU Meridian Saturday, you'd see a clothesline full of t-shirts.

Those t-shirts were designed by survivors of domestic abuse. The shirts tell the individual stories of these brave survivors. This display of t-shirts is being called the 'Clothesline Project' by those involved. The action of telling their stories, helps for these men and women in the grieving process.

"Well this is a very therapeutic tool in the recover of the victim in expressing themselves and helping them work through the issues that they dealt with when they were victims of abuse," says Tish Seydel, one of the project organizers.

Those involved in the Clothesline Project say the main goal is to help survivors of domestic abuse. They also want society to realize that domestic abuse is still a very real problem that can cause violence among all age groups.
