Monument Quilt National Mall Volunteer Form
May 31-June 2, 2019, the Monument Quilt will blanket the National Mall with 3,000 stories from survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence, and messages of support, in a culminating display. After 5 years and 49 displays across the country and in Mexico, we hope you can join us to create public, healing space by and for survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence in our nation's capital. We are so excited, and grateful, about the prospect of collaborating with you to bring this vision to life!

The Monument Quilt by art and activist collective FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture is an on-going collection of stories from survivors of rape and abuse, and messages of support. 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 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.
