Survivors, family and friends of survivors, allies, and advocates are invited to join HopeWorks of Howard County on Saturday, April 18, 2015 to help create The Monument Quilt, a project of FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture. The Monument Quilt is a crowd-sourced collection of thousands of stories from survivors of rape and abuse. The quilt will be witnessed across the United States through a tour, quilt making workshops, and a historic display in our nation’s capital. Blanketing over one mile of the National Mall, thousands of fabric squares will be stitched together in 2017 to spell “NOT ALONE.”
During the workshop, you will have a chance to work with HopeWorks’ supportive community to add your personal experience to the quilt, and join the movement to create a public, healing space. You can sew, paint, write, or even iron your story onto a piece of red fabric. The Monument Quilt is a platform to not only tell our stories, but work together to forever change how Americans respond to rape. We are creating a new culture where survivors are publicly supported rather than publicly shamed. We hope you will be part of this healing story.
Join us for Sexual Assault Awareness Month to make a square about how faith communities can better support survivors!
Places of worship are looked upon as places of healing, yet so many survivors walk in carrying the burden of sexual violence and walk out in the same brokenness. Join the Monument Quilt and other community organizations to uplift yourself as a leader who can help change this. At this workshop, create your own quilt square about how faith communities can and should better support survivors, sharing your own stories and ideas for moving forward.
Location: Cecil College, 1 Seahawk Drive, North East, MD 21901, United States
Description: The Clothesline Project will be displayed in collaboration with the Cecil County Domestic Violence Rape Crisis Center.
