More than 650 tee-shirts line VSU's Pedestrian Mall.

Known as the Clothesline Project, these hand-painted shirts are created by students and survivors expressing their disdain for violence against women.

Each shirt tells a story to convey that abuse will NOT be tolerated.

This year's slogan, "Until the Violence Ends," lets the public know domestic violence affects every race, sexual orientation and has no socio-economic boundaries.

"Stay positive. There is a way out," said Stella Perry, a junior at VSU. "Always. You know, just to have someone to call, especially if you have some good friends, good family, and definitely, you know. You can get out of that situation"

"Relationships are supposed to be about love.," said Brian Derrick, a freshman at VSU. "You don't love someone by hitting them. You love someone by, you know, caring what like how their day was. What they're doin with their life."

The Clothesline Project's tee-shirt display will be on campus through Friday, October 15.
