Take Back the Night

To close this amazing month of April, Sexual Assault Awareness month, community members poured out to join Clarina as we marched through downtown Morrisville for Take Back the Night. Every 68 seconds in the US, someone is sexually assaulted. #Stoptheviolence

Students raise awareness for sexual assault

Vermont State University students organized art activities, shared resources with their fellow students, and more for Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

We’re so grateful to these young people changing the world! #shatterthesilence #stoptheviolence

What is the Clothesline Project?

Thank you to Jenna’s Promise and Two Sons Bakehouse Vermont for displaying the Clothesline Project at their cafe in Johnson throughout the month of April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The Clothesline Project is a visual representation of sexual assault in our community. Sexual assault survivors, and those affected by sexual assault, use words and/or artwork to decorate t-shirts which are then hung on a clothesline. This project can be educational for those viewing it and healing for those who participate.

Homelessness Awareness Walk 2024

The Vermont Coalition to End Homelessness, of which Clarina is a member, held their annual Homelessness Awareness march and vigil on January 18.

Last year, 536 people experienced homelessness in Lamoille County — 169 children, 347 adults ages 18 to 64, and 20 adults over 65. Across the state, a total of 7,795 people were homeless in 2023. Read more about the event in the News & Citizen.

Vermont Pride Parade 2023

Clarina staff celebrated LGBTQ+ pride by marching in the Vermont Pride parade this summer alongside the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. The joy was contagious! #lovewins

Clarina’s services are available to all survivors, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, disability, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
