Battling Domestic Violence
At the event, organized by Bronx AIDS Services (BAS) during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, participants were asked to write anti-violence messages on T-shirts and hang them on clotheslines. The Clothesline Project is designed to give those touched by domestic violence, a chance to express themselves and the encouragement to break their silence and seek help.
In all, 299 T-shirts were hung. There were messages in English, Spanish and Arabic.
The Clothesline Project was
organized by BAS because of statistical linkages between domestic violence
and HIV. For information on the services BAS provides, go to
