The monument quilt
The Monument Quilt is an collection of 3,000 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. The culminating display occurred May 31-June 2, 2019, when the Quilt blanketed 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 art-based ways for all survivors to be part this effort, including a monthly potluck, a monthly skill-share series, and special events.
Gather Together is organizing a Listening Campaign. We are training survivors of rape and abuse of all genders to interview one another to 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.
