 THE CLOTHESLINE PROJECT – This is INTERACT’S fifth year of collaboration
with the Center for Family Justice, Trumbull Rotary, The Trumbull Library and the
Trumbull Women’s Club to promote domestic violence awareness in the community.
The project began in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women and families.
Facts regarding domestic abuse: 1 in 4 women will experience physical abuse in their
lifetime, 1 in 3 teens report knowing a friend or peer who has been abused by a
partner, 85% of victims of abuse are women and most incidents of abuse go
unreported. For more information or support, stop by our table during lunch waves!
Thank you for supporting InterAct’s project!
