Sexual Assault Awareness Week: Creating a lasting reminder of empowerment

Today marks the last day of Sexual Assault Awareness Week (SAAW).  The week may end here, but the message involved in this week is one that will continue to be in the forefront. Raising awareness, never blaming the victim and breaking the stigma of sexual assault is something that we will work at daily.

Today at the Crisis Shelter & Residence we created canvases inspired by “The Clothesline Project” to convey messages of strength, consent and awareness.

These beautiful pieces are a strong reminder of the important messages of SAAW that we all need to carry forward.
