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."
Gather Together is multi-racial, multi-gender, Baltimore based grassroots collective of people who encountered and survived sexual and domestic violence at some point in their lives. We welcome and honor survivors and victims of sexual and domestic violence to our family. We organize a variety of ways for all survivors to be part this effort, including a monthly potluck, a monthly skill-share series, and special programs and events, with a focus on the arts.
Gather Together is organizing a Listening Campaign, to take place from January-June of 2018. We are training survivors of rape and abuse of all genders to interview one another. With this information, we will identify what survivors in Baltimore believe it will take to create a city without rape and abuse. Stay tuned on our Facebook page for upcoming trainings and events when you can learn how to get involved in the campaign, or click below to read more.
