Clayton State University Psi Chi International Honor Society in Psychology, Southern Crescent Sexual Assault Center and Clayton State University Counseling and Psychological Services will host the Fourth Annual Take Back The Night (TBTN) commemoration and Clothes Line Project (CLP)
The CLP will take place Monday, Apr. 16 to Thursday, Apr. 19, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., on Main Street, on the second floor of Clayton State’s James M. Baker University Center.
CLP will address the issue of violence against women and men. It is a vehicle for women and men affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. The shirt will then be hung on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women and men. TBTN will consist of a rally, candle light vigil, and speakers will reflect on those who have been victimized by sexual violence.
TBTN will take place on Wednesday, Apr. 18, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., on the L. Jerry Eskew Stage of the Judge Eugene Lawson Amphitheater, located between the Baker Center and Spivey Hall.
TBTN will highlight April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month’s (SAAM) purpose to raise public awareness about sexual violence and educate communities on awareness and prevention of sexual violence. TBTN will consist of a rally, candle light vigil, and speakers will protest the affects of sexual violence and reflect on those who have been victimized by sexual violence.
CLP and TBTN works in conjunction with April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month’s (SAAM) purpose to increase awareness and prevention of sexual violence.
