2017 Tentative Agenda

THE CLOTHESLINE PROJECT The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to the violence against men, women, and children. Survivors of violence decorate shirts in triumph of their experiences.  Friends & Family of victims who have died because of violence decorate shirts in memory of their loved one.  We display the shirts to educate our community about the effects of violence.  
The shirts are color coded to show the form of abuse and whether the victim survived.
* White – Died because of violence

* Yellow/Beige – Battered/Assaulted

*  Red/Pink/Orange – Rape/Sexual Assault

*  Blue/Green – Incest/Sexual Abuse

​*  Purple/Lavender – Sexual Orientation

​*  Black – Political Reasons

CANDLELIGHT VIGIL Candles will be passed out during the Speak Out.  The participants are encouraged to carry the candles during the walk back across the river.  We walk in silence to remember the lives lost to violence. 

An Open Mic opportunity to let your voice be heard in speaking out about sexual violence. *Please respect participants during Speak Out by not filming/audio recording at that time.



We have started the planning season for the 28th Cincinnati/Northern KentuckyTake Back the Night to bring awareness of the ongoing problems of sexual violence in our community. Join us on April 20, 2017 to become part of the solution, part of the end to sexual violence.
