Outer Banks Hotline's Clothesline Project is a visual display dedicated to raising awareness about the reality of violence in our community.

This Clothesline is on display at the Community Care Clinic for the remainder of the month of October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. [gallery columns="2" ids="955,956"]
