The YWCA’s “Week Without Violence” (October 14-October 18) is a national movement working toward ending violence against girls and women; bringing awareness to the growth in human trafficking. The YWCA is asking for the participation of citizens and allies through the “Red Sand Project,” an art instillation which involves filling a crack on the street with red sand as a symbol of support.
Here are the instructions that are listed on the YWCA website:
Fill a sidewalk crack outside your building with red sand;
Snap a photo with your phone or tablet;
ShareÂ your photo on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) using the hashtags #RedSandProject, #YWCA, & #WeekWithoutViolence; and tagging YWCA Lancaster: @YWCALancaster. If you don’t have a social media account, please email your picture to
firstname.lastname@example.org and we will happily post your image on our own social media page to recognize your partnership.
To receive a bag of sand, fill out the form on their website.
