NEWBURGH, N.Y. -- Safe Homes of Orange County placed dozens of t-shirts at the Newburgh Resource and Business Center as part of the Clothesline Project.
The project is a visual representation of domestic violence and abuse in Orange County. According to local leaders, 19 women have been killed as a result of domestic violence incidents in the area since 2004. Three of those women were killed over the last 10 months.
"Well the Clothesline is important because it gives victims and survivors to speak out and speak up in various different ways, but it also allows the community to become more aware of the impact domestic violence has not only on survivors but also on their family members and the community as a whole," said Kellyann Kostyal-Larrier, Safe Homes of Orange County Executive Director.
The Clothesline Project is just one of a number of events hosted by Safe Homes during October and Domestic Violence Awareness month.
