What our logo means

Disability Clothesline logo.

Under the Nazis, over half a million disabled adults and children were systematically killed and abused. In the death camps they wore a black triangle on their uniforms to classify them. What happened to them has remained largely invisible over the years.

Today we use the black triangle for our disability clothesline project, to stand for the disabled New Zealanders who have been subject to all kinds of violence and abuse. What has happened to them has been largely invisible over time, but it cannot remain so because we are speaking out about our experiences.

On our clothesline which winds about the black triangle our decorated tee shirts hang. Our stories are visible for the public to learn about, and recognise.
