Join Riverview Center at the Independence Public Library April 25-28th to view the clothesline project,
a traveling public art display created by survivors of sexual and domestic abuse to share their stories on
their road to healing. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men in Iowa will experience sexual or domestic violence in
their lifetimes – learn the stories behind the statistics to empower survivors in our community.

Blank t-shirts and other supplies will also be on hand for sexual and domestic abuse survivors visiting the
display to decorate their own shirt to contribute to this project.
