Join us for “WHAT IS LOVE?” — an empowering, interactive community event demonstrating support for victims and survivors of domestic and interpersonal violence – on Saturday, Oct. 22 11 AM – 2 PM, Westminster City Park.

The event features the Clothesline Project, a public art display of t-shirts decorated by survivors of abuse or in honor of those lost to interpersonal violence. The heartfelt and powerful messages included in the visual display convey the devastating impact of abuse and the necessary courage to end the silence.

Calling all visual and performing artists to
participate in Springboard's October 22 event

You are strong. Together, we are stronger.

You are not alone. Families and children in the Baltimore metropolitan area are touched by crime and violence every day. Violence and abuse have consequences far beyond the immediate crisis. They disrupt lives. Pain, fear, and isolation ripple through families and communities. For children and adults, violence and abuse are the root cause of risky behavior, mental illness, disability, disease, and death.

If you, your child or someone in your family has been hurt, we can help. Springboard will guide you through the criminal justice system. We offer crisis intervention, counseling, temporary shelter, and help with basic needs, such as food, clothing, and accessing community resources.

If you need help, call us. We’ll be here.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) was launched nationwide in October 1987 as a way to connect and unite individuals and organizations working on domestic violence issues while raising awareness for those issues. Over the past 30+ years, progress has been made to support domestic violence victims and survivors, to hold abusers accountable, and to create and update legislation to further those goals.

What is Love and Clothesline Project?

The Clothesline Project is a non-governmental organization created to bring awareness to the issue of violence against women men and children. For those who have been affected by violence, it is a means of expressing their emotions by decorating a t-shirt.[1] After the shirts have been decorated, they are hung on a clothesline display. The intention of the display is to honor survivors and act as a memorial for victims. It is also intended to aid in the healing process for those who were directly affected and those who have lost someone special to violence. Lastly, the clothesline display is to educate society and promote awareness, as well as to document violent crimes against women.[2]
