Worcester County Clothesline Project
(WCCP) started in 1992 as a joint effort between agencies and women’s groups to bring the issues of violence against women into the public domain. This local group began with 39 shirts made in the summer of 1992. Pathways for Change inherited the WCCP in 2000 and by the end of 2006, there were more than 1,000 shirts in this one project. Shirt displays continue to be requested by communities, colleges, high schools, churches and women’s groups. If you would like to request this project please email Amparo Cruz at email@example.com.
#GlorifyTHIS is Pathways for Change’s Social Media Campaign for SAAM. Every day this campaign will highlight quotes from survivors, their loved ones, and the people who commit to advocating for them (celebrities, professionals, volunteers). We will be shining a light onto the realities our community is facing.
