HIKE FOR HEALING
Hike for Healing is a hike or walk to generate funds and awareness about the Monument Quilt. The idea is for people to self organize walks and hikes across the US on October 29th, or to join in on our walk in Baltimore City. Ahead of time, you'd form teams on our Crowdrise page and help us reach $100K. Teams can begin by sharing, signing up and fundraising today!
The monument quilt
The Monument Quilt is an on-going collection of stories from survivors of rape and abuse. Written, stitched, and painted onto red fabric, our stories are displayed in city and town centers to create and demand public space to heal. The quilt builds a new culture where survivors are publicly supported, rather than publicly shamed. In a final display, the Quilt will blanket the National Mall to spell "NOT ALONE."
#negotiatingsex in 30 seconds
While the profile of sexual consent has risen dramatically in the past few years, there is still a lot of confusion about consent in the mainstream media. Since we know that open and direct communication improves sex, and sex without consent is assault, FORCE is hosting the “Negotiating Sex in 30 Seconds or Less” video contest. View the full rules on Youtube.
Gather Together is a Baltimore based collective of survivors of sexual and domestic violence engaging in advocacy by centering our stories. We design public campaigns to support healing and prevention. Our bi-monthly meetings are for healing through collective action. We beleive that survivors should lead the conversation about sexual and domestic abuse.
