BFL’s Secret Garden At St. John’s Turn Off The Violence Week
Turn Off the Violence Week includes the Clothesline Project, and is a week of empowerment and awareness regarding sexual violence in the community. The Clothesline Project started in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for people affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. Students design a shirt to give a voice to and expose the horrific experiences that affect our community. For the 10th Annual Turn Off the Violence Week, “From Behind the Screen to #MeToo.”
The Next Steps Fair is a wrap up to the week by providing resources in the community to students. Learn more here.
