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 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.
