The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts with graphic messages and illustrations that have been designed by women affected by violence or by someone who loves a woman who has experienced violence or has died due to the violence. The shirts can be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women and to advocate putting an end to this violence. Use your own shirt or pick up a shirt at LSSU Counseling Services or the Sabin Room located in the Cisler Student Center and then share your story through messages and illustrations. Art supplies will be available at both locations. Blank shirts may be picked up at LSSU Counseling Services from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., April 15-19 or Sabin Room, Cisler lower level from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on the same dates. Completed shirts may be dropped off at the LSSU Counseling Center or Office of Campus Life. Shirts will be on display April 15-22 in the lower level of the Walker Cisler Center and Fletcher Center lobby.

Stacey Lannert, Her Journey from Abuse to Prison and Beyond
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Strong, hopeful and charismatic, Stacey Lannert doesn't just speak about overcoming childhood sexual abuse. She connects with her audience. Viewers feel her pain and, most important, her triumph. Stacey was recently released from the Missouri prison where she served 18 years for fatally shooting the her father, who raped her from ages 8-18. Stacey never lost her ability to love life and learn from it even though she was sentenced to life without parole. The Missouri governor granted her clemency in 2009, and within 6 days, she walked out of the prison gates. She's now telling her story so other women can learn from her mistakes.
Immediately following speaker Stacey Lannert's presentation in the Cisler Center, show your support for those who have suffered from sexual assault and abuse by joining us for a march around campus. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness about sexual violence.
