August 14th display of the Monument Quilt in Des Moines, Iowa. The Monument Quilt is a crowd-sourced collection of thousands of stories of survivors of rape and abuse, alongside messages of love and support from allies in the movement to upset rape culture. By stitching our stories together, we are creating and demanding public space to heal.

The Monument Quilt is a platform to not only tell our stories, but work together to forever change how American respond to rape. We are building a new culture where survivors are publicly supported rather than publicly shamed.

The Des Moines display of the quilt is part of FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture’s summer tour across the country. Visit themonumentquilt.org to learn more about the tour and how to get involved in the project.
