UND events to raise awareness of domestic and sexual violence

Two events seeking to draw attention to domestic and sexual violence will take place on Wednesday Oct. 9, and Thursday, Oct. 10, on the UND campus.

The Clothesline Project is a display of T-shirts and shawls that have been created by survivors of violence, or by loved ones who have lost someone to violence. The clothing acts as a visual testimonial on the impact of interpersonal violence on campus, the community and state. Each shirt is unique, and they are color-coded to represent different types of victims. A student ID is not required for the event. The project is available for viewing on Oct. 9-10, in the Wellness Center on the UND campus in rooms 120 and 121. The project is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. both days.

The Take Back the Night Rally will happen on Thursday, Oct. 10. There will be a march on campus from the Wellness Center to the Chester Fritz Auditorium. The march will begin at 6 p.m. There is also a social hour at the auditorium that will begin after the march is completed. At 7 p.m., the Take Back the Night program will begin at the Chester Fritz.
