About The Event

In honor of One Billion Rising, the Fort Irwin community has been collecting and decorating t-shirts for a Clothesline Project display. The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts on a clothesline with graphic messages and illustrations that have been designed by survivors and those who love and support them to raise awareness about the issues of sexual assault and domestic violence. The Clothesline Project display will make its debut at our One Billion Rising Event, which consists of a 5k run and Hero WOD, and intense set of exercises in which all of the reps have significance to the issue (ex. 26 squats for the 26% of women currently serving on active duty who have been sexually assaulted during their military career). Participants who donate a decorated shirt to the Clothesline Project get free admission to the run. After the One Billion Rising event, the Clothesline project display will rotate on a weekly basis to different locations around post for the next two months.
