In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, BOOM Health Services hosted its 12th annual Traveling Clothesline Project event at Msgr. Raul Del Valle Square on Wednesday, October 18 to honor survivors and mourn lives lost to domestic violence.

The project reveals violence against women and as its namesake suggests features shirts decorated to represent a particular woman’s experience whether a survivor or someone close to one which are then hung from a clothesline.
