Through hosting a workshop, you can help make your community a supportive and responsive space for survivors of rape and abuse. Workshops create space for survivors and allies to make quilt squares with technical and emotional support and in community with one another, providing churches, schools, towns and our country clear and accessible steps to create a culture of support. FORCE’s workshop guide includes a step-by-step outline, downloadable resources, and information on supporting survivors.
Bring The Monument Quilt to your town!
People across the US are invited to host a Monument Quilt display. Displays of the quilt are a platform to uplift the work you do to build a culture of support for survivors of rape and abuse. The Monument Quilt mobilizes survivors across the country to stand together, resisting a one dimensional narrative about how rape and abuse happens, and who it affects. Displays can coincide with legislation, court cases, protests and other acts of resistance against rape and abuse, building solidarity and raising the visibility between our efforts.
Hosting a fundraising event is a fun way to mobilize your community to help make the Monument Quilt possible. Click the link above to read our fundraising event tool-kit complete with ideas, tips and steps!
