|MPJC honors Nancy McClintock for her lifelong activism in the peace and justice community. In addition to organizing a local Clothesline Project, Nancy was a tireless worker locally, nationally, and internationally.
She was active, most often as a leader, in many organizations, including WILPF, NAACP, ACLU, Monterey County Anti-Poverty Council, Legal Aid Society, Welfare Rights Organization, the Human Rights Commission for the City of Seaside, and was elected to the first Board of the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District.
In March and April of 2016, MPJC hosted an exhibit of memorabilia from Nancy’s lifelong activism, including the Clothesline Project and a piece of her own artwork.
The Clothes Line Project
The Clothesline Project is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women.
On display are LOTS of artistically-enhanced clothes, such as you see above.
