Un-muffle your voice – join The Long Red Line and help create change through self expression, surviving abuse, growing self-esteem, raising our children nonviolently, developing & supporting community resources.

Bring a red cloth, any length, made of any material, any shade of red. Knit it, crochet it, sew it, buy it, or create your own artistic version of it.

On Valentine’s Day, show your love and support for the one in three women and the one in seven men victimized by rape and other forms of violence.
