Upcoming and Past Events
The Clothesline Project
Hood River Library Lawn
April 3rd-17th 2023
Helping Hands Against Violence is putting together the Clothesline Project in Hood River, Oregon to raise awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault. Helping Hands Against Violence invites the community to attend the Clothesline Project on April 3rd from 10am-5pm at the Hood River Library conference room where survivors and supporters can decorate shirts and meet with Helping Hands staff who will be present to answer questions. Shirts and materials will be provided. Art and writing are healing. The shirts are a vehicle for uplifting survivors and educating the public about the issue of domestic violence and sexual assault.
The Clothesline Project allows survivors of abuse to express themselves and for others to demonstrate their support for survivors. The idea for a clothesline display originally derived from Rachel Cary-Harper, a visual artist and activist. Survivors tell their stories by writing their experiences on shirts and hanging them on the clothesline.
Please stop by the Hood River Library Lawn April 3rd -17th to experience the Clothesline Project.
Take a trip to Cascade Locks on April 20th.
Join Thunder Island Brewing Company in supporting Helping Hands Against Violence on April 20th from 5-9 pm. Every drink participants purchase between 5-9 pm, alcoholic and nonalcoholic, will donate one dollar to Helping Hands Against Violence and their mission to support survivors.
One-of-a-kind businesses that donated to the silent auction portion of the night will display items for you to bid on and potentially win. Have a drink and bid on a few great experiences ranging from a weekend at Manzanita on the Oregon Coast to a wine tasting for six people, two tickets to the musical Rent, and beginner windsurfing lessons from Big Winds. All proceeds will benefit survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and stalking.
