Denim Day/Clothesline Project and Self Defense Workshop

On Wednesday, April 24th Professors Myriam Levy and Jill Biondo as well as students enrolled in Sociology 1 took part in bringing awareness to violence against women. Nathan Carlan, LAMC P E instructor facilitated the Self-Defense workshop.
Denim Day is an event in which people are encouraged to wear jeans (denim) in order to raise awareness of rape and sexual assault.
The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women.
