History Center exhibit this week amplifies survivor stories through art and activism

The Ithaca Voice - June 23rd 2022 - by Eva Salzman

"In addition to the Clothesline Project, the exhibit features artifacts from Tompkins County since the 1970s that document the history of victim and survivor support and prevention efforts in the area. What is now known as The Advocacy Center began as the Task Force for Battered Women in 1977 to support survivors of domestic abuse."
