The Clothesline Project is a visual display bearing witness to many forms of interpersonal violence. Shirts reflect experiences from survivors themselves and peers are able to offer messages of hope, healing, and social change.  There will be shirt-making and self-care activity tables, as well as tables from campus- and community-based resources.  Please take care and plan routes around campus accordingly.

“A Better Man” Film Screening - October 22nd 6:30pm – 8:30pm
In Pertnership with Feminist Alliance and Temple University Libraries
“A Better Man” is a film about accountability and healing.  It follows one survivor as she documents “a personal experiment” with an abusive ex-partner in the hopes of gaining deeper understanding of their relationship and his behavior.  The filmmaker shares a personal search for justice as a way to contribute to the struggle to end domestic violence.  
Please note this film contains detailed conversations and descriptions of violence.  A discussion will be held after the film and on-site confidential resources will be available to attendees.  We encourage folks reach out to TUWellness@temple.edu to learn if this event is the best fit for you, your group, or your class.
