The Rape Treatment Center at UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica sponsored The Clothesline Project at the Santa Monica campus in April in conjunction with Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The project featured a display of more than 150 T-shirts created by sexual-assault survivors or their loved ones as a voice against violence. The shirts were color-coded, with red for survivors of sexual assault and blue for victims of childhood sexual abuse. Founded in 1990, The Clothesline Project is a national initiative to raise awareness about the prevalence and impact of violence and sexual abuse against women and children.
