Project to spread sexual assault awareness


NAUGATUCK — For four days next week, people can help spread awareness of sexual violence by stopping by the gazebo on the Naugatuck Green.

The #voice2change T-shirt Project will be on the Green April 3 through April 5. T-shirts with messages to raise awareness for sexual violence will be on display at the gazebo. People can stop by and create their own T-shirts from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. each day through the project.

The suggested donation is $20 for a T-shirt. All materials are included, and the T-shirts will be displayed publicly during April, which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The money will benefit Jane Doe No More, a Naugatuck-based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support for victims of sexual violence and improving the way society responds to survivors of sexual violence.
