T-shirts bring focus to gender violence

The Family Resource Centre is engaged in a campaign against gender violence, with events running through Dec. 10.

The awareness-raising effort, 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence, will include radio interviews and use of #HearMeToo.

T-shirts that were painted as part of last year’s campaign will be on display throughout the 16-day event at the various districts across Grand Cayman. Uplifting slogans painted by those impacted by gender violence on T-shirts is one way of bringing attention to the issue.

Another painting event, Clothesline Project T-shirt, will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at the Family Resource Centre.

Participants are encouraged to display their stories in an artistic medium and engage in the healing process, with different colors representing various types of violence. All shirts are the property of center.

No registration is required. For further information call the center at 949-0006.

On Dec. 10, Human Rights Day and the 16 Days closing ceremony will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. at Town Hall in George Town. The event is sponsored by the Business and Professional Women’s Club and is open to the public.
