National collection of survivor stories on display Wednesday

21950946_1924576591130358_7693044133996180855_oThe Monument Quilt is a national ongoing collection of stories from survivors of rape and abuse. Written, stitched and painted onto red fabric, the stories are displayed in city and town centers across the country to create and demand public space to heal.

See the moving tribute on campus Wednesday, Oct. 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the binary walkway (or, in the case of rain, Tinkham Veale University Center).

In a final display, the Quilt will blanket the National Mall to spell “NOT ALONE.”

To date, more than 1,000 quilt squares have been collected and organized and have been displayed in 22 cities across the U.S.
