The Clothesline Project is a national memorial for those affected by Domestic Violence (DV). Individual Clotheslines are located around the U.S.; the shirts in each location are made by people in that locale.
According to their national website (http://www.clotheslineproject.org/), "The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women." Victims (or relatives, for victims who were murdered by their assailants) create a shirt honoring the victim; the shirt is then displayed on the local clothesline. Individual clotheslines are set up periodically by various groups and DV shelters in the area that the shirts are from.
This video is part of the Tampa Bay Clothesline Project and was displayed at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg on March 3, 2010. During the interview, reference is made to C.A.S.A., a DV shelter in St. Pete.
