The Monument Quilt is a survivor-led art+activism project the scale of which I have never seen before. The Quilt holds a community, a spiritual ripple disrupting the cruel ubiquity of sexual violence, a transformative public healing space for survivors of rape and abuse. And it's true, all true, people really do come to the quilt and lay their burdens DOWN. Astonishing to witness the depth, the vibrance of the courage and love swirling around a quilt display. Righteous people across the country are hiking to raise funds and awareness for the Monument Quilt. Our end goal...well, the end goal is to end rape culture, but let's say the "big show" for this project is a mile-long installation on the national mall in 2018. Over 2000 quilt squares have been collected from survivors and supporters across the country who agree that rape and abuse can and must end, and that survivors deserve to be witnessed and supported in their healing. To get to the national mall we need to collect a lot more stories, and each person's story requires money to process, integrate, store, and display. Can you help? Please support me in reaching my goal of $300 for this project.
