Monument Quilt at CWRU

Monument Quilt at CWRU

The Monument Quilt is a national on-going 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. This important project resists the popular and narrow narrative of how sexual violence occurs by telling many stories, not one. 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." On Wednesday, October 11, the Monument Quilt will be displayed from 10 am-2 pm on the campus of Case Western Reserve University outdoors at the corner of Euclid Blvd and Adelbert Road. The display is free and open to the community. (In case of inclement weather, the quilt will be displayed inside the Tinkham Veale University Center, 11038 Bellflower Road.) To date, over 1,000 collected quilt squares have been collected and organized by Force: Upsetting Rape Culture, and have been displayed in 22 different cities across the US. Survivors of rape and abuse, loved ones and supporters will have the opportunity to create a square during the quilt display. Resources for survivors and advocates from campus and community groups will be available. For information, contact the Social Justice Institute at 216.368.7568 or socialjustice@case.edu.  Hosted by ATNSC: Center for Healing & Creative Leadership and 6 others
