The Justice Quilt
A member of Intersection for the Arts
The Justice Quilt is a nation wide collaboration taking place in every state where we build better connections between each other and a huge quilt of many colors with JUSTICE writ large. Our digital and live story circles invite people to share their stories of justice. Sewers and non-sewers in less than an hour build colorful panels of fabric. After we connect all the pieces we’ve created together, The Justice Quilt will return to the contributing communities around the country for our culminating event to be displayed on buildings in a dramatic visual statement!
The Justice Quilt project began the week of October 25, 2018, with the killing of two black customers in a Kroger grocery store by a xenophobic white nationalist in Kentucky, and the deadly anti-Semitic massacre at Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, and mail bombs targeted anti-white-nationalism figures all over the United States. Societal forces are working to convince us we are not collectively committed to inclusive healthy communities for all of us. In that moment Claudia Alick and Amanda Browder combined their passion and artistic vision to respond. Together we must make an undeniable statement for justice. That is what we are doing and we need your help now.
