Valdosta - A simple t-shirt could help promote domestic violence awareness.

Valdosta State University and the Haven Battered Women's Shelter hopes it will.

They hung 330 t-shirts on the VSU front lawn as part of the clothesline project.

Each with a message of hope from a student, teacher or resident at the Haven who's been affected by domestic violence and abuse.

They hope these messages will raise awareness throughout the campus and community. 

"We all need to be aware. We all need to observe. Every 18 seconds a woman is beaten in the United States and not only does it affect the individual that's physically, emotionally or sexually abused but their children, family, neighbors and co-workers," says Leah McMillan, a family therapist at VSU.

The project is in observance of Domestic Violence Awareness month.  The shirts will remain on display through Friday.
