This weekend, the National Mall will be blanketed by the Monument Quilt, a patchwork of thousands of stories from survivors of sexual assault. The project was overseen by the Baltimore artist-activist group, FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture.

Kalima Young, part of the project’s leadership team, talks about the quilt’s significance, and E Cadoux, a member of FORCE, describes the healing process. Learn more about the events, running Friday through Sunday, here.
