Following our 50th and final display of the Monument Quilt on the National Mall, FORCE is now archiving the quilt, placing each of the 750 blocks in permanent collections around the world, so that these urgent stories from survivors and our allies can continue to be heard and so that the history and legacy of our efforts can be preserved.
The Monument Quilt is the first national memorial to survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence. The thousands of survivors who told their stories in the more that 3000 quilts, did so between 2013-2019 — during the MeToo era — illustrating the role of art in creating this dramatic shift in consciousness. A photograph of each quilt is archived at app.themonumentquilt.org.
