I co-founded FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture in 2010 and was part of the collective until 2020. By and for survivors, FORCE is an art and organizing collective. Pictured here is our largest project to date, The Monument Quilt -- a collection of over 3,000 stories by survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence and our allies, painted and stitched onto red fabric. Our stories blanket highly public, outdoor places to create and demand space to heal, and resist a singular narrative about sexual violence. In June 2019, we organized the 50th and final display on the National Mall. This video tells part of the story from our weekend. Learn more:
