The Clothesline project is an annual event that not only is celebrated in SUNY Fredonia, but around the world. As a part of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault awareness Month, WSU is putting on an event to raise awareness and to give artists of any caliber to perform and express their voices and to spread awareness of a subject that not everyone is comfortable talking about. Come express your thoughts and come watch others let things go!
