What our logo means
In Nazi Germany, 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 Australians with disability who have been subjected to all kinds of violence and abuse.
What has happened to us has been largely invisible over time, but it
cannot remain so because we are speaking out about our experiences.
Our logo was created by the NZ Disability Clothesline Project team,
who have generously allowed us to adopt it as a universal symbol.
You can find out about their project here.
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.
