Clothesline Project shows raw words from those impacted by sexual assaults

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Campus sexual assaults have gained national attention including the attention of Vice President Joe Biden.

It's all in the wake of the rising reports of sexual assaults on college campuses.

More than 400 T-shirts,  designed by victims, survivors and advocates highlighted the impact of sexual violence at the University of Iowa.

The Clothesline Project aims to advocate the healing process for victims and their loved ones.

"This is how I don't feel alone is with the shirts," said Robyn Conrad, a sexual assault survivor. "The shirts give me a sense that there's more people out there like me and there's still people out there that need to speak up."

Organizers say annual-national clothesline event gives people the raw words of those impacted by sexual crimes.

Every two minuets someone is sexually assaulted in the United States.
