About

We are Someone You Know.

A peer-education group that focuses on sexual violence prevention, awareness, advocacy, survivor support and intervention skills. We actively engage in presenting detailed programs to various campus organizations, including fraternities and sororities, club sports teams, multicultural organizations and more. Our mission encompasses organizing campus-wide, year-round passive programming initiatives like #WhyIDidntReport, the National Clothesline Project, and the Red Flag Campaign. Additionally, we host interactive programming that facilitates discussions on specific topics, particularly the unique violence experienced by marginalized populations.

The National Clothesline Project at William & Mary, initiated in April 2018, embodies a profound commitment to preventing and raising awareness about sexual assault and interpersonal violence. Inspired by the original Clothesline Project that began in Cape Cod in 1990, our mission is to provide a powerful visual representation of survivors' experiences and to foster a supportive community dialogue. By allowing survivors, second-hand survivors, and supporters to share their stories through the medium of color-coded T-shirts, we create a tangible manifestation of the impact of sexual violence and the resilience of those affected. Our project transcends mere awareness; it is a sanctuary of empowerment and solidarity, where voices that were once silenced are now heard and acknowledged.

With the help of Tribefunding, we aim to not only sustain but also expand this vital initiative. The success of the Clothesline Project over the past years at William & Mary has demonstrated a clear and urgent need for such platforms of expression and support within our campus community. By leveraging Tribefunding, we seek to ensure the continuity of this annual tradition, enhance our outreach, and provide more resources for participants. The funds raised will support the logistical aspects of hosting the event, such as securing larger spaces to accommodate growing participation, providing T-shirts free of charge, and ensuring the presence of confidential resources for students. 

Ultimately, our goal is to deepen our impact — helping to start crucial conversations, support survivors and promote a culture of respect and understanding. Tribefunding offers us the opportunity to unite our community in the fight against sexual violence, making a tangible difference in the lives of many and enriching the campus experience with a profound sense of empathy and solidarity.

Your contribution will provide support to promote sexual assault and interpersonal violence awareness and advocacy by hosting the National Clothesline Project, for which it will purchase t-shirts, clothesline supplies, self-care items and printing services.
