One Billion Rising: Survivors Break the Silence

United States > Petoskey > North Central Michigan College Library, 1515 Howard Street > 2014-02-14 > 12:00 pm

About The Event

A Clothesline Project of more than 40 t-shirts designed by local survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault will be displayed at the North Central Michigan College library February 10 through 21. North Central, in partnership with the Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan (WRCNM), is making the display available to the public as a part of One Billion Rising – a global call to action focusing attention on the fact that one in three women will be beaten or raped in her lifetime. The shirts provide a way for survivors to break the silence about these crimes and release their stories in a creative, impactful and empowering way. North Central Michigan College is located at 1515 Howard Street, Petoskey, MI. For details or library hours, call North Central at (231) 348-6600, or call the WRCNM at (231) 347-0067 or visit wrcnm.org.
