Join us on August 19 to witness and interact with a historic display of The Monument Quilt in Chicago. The Monument Quilt is a crowd-sourced collection of thousands of stories of survivors of rape and abuse, alongside messages of love and support from allies in the movement to upset rape culture. By stitching our stories together, we are creating and demanding public space to heal.
The Monument Quilt is a platform to not only tell our stories, but work together to forever change how America responds to rape. We are building a new culture where survivors are publicly supported rather than publicly shamed.
The Chicago display of the quilt is part of Force:Upsetting Rape Culture’s summer tour across the country https://themonumentquilt.org/public-monument-to-rape-survivors-tours-the-united-states/ to learn more about the tour and how to get involved in the project.
