U.S. Embassy Grenada joins 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign
The United States Embassy in Grenada marked the 16 Days of activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign 2022 by participating in the Clothesline project. The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts made by survivors of violence or by those who have lost a loved one to violence. The project aims to increase awareness of the impact of violence and abuse, honors a survivor’s strength to continue, and provides an avenue for them to courageously break the silence that often surrounds their experience. The Clothesline project has been displayed across the world, including the Ministry of Social Development in Grenada.
Principal Officer Frances Herrera noted, “This project will be a testimony on behalf of the many women and girls who are survivors of the various forms of abuse and violence. It will also help survivors find a voice while they heal.” The display will be showcased at the Embassy until December 10.
The United States condemns all forms and instances of gender-based violence and reaffirms its unwavering commitment to preventing and responding to gender-based violence as a moral and strategic imperative, as a fairness and equity issue, and as a driver of our collective prosperity and security.
