Thousands of stories from survivors of rape and abuse. They are part of the Monument Quilt, helping to foster a culture where survivors are supported.

The UNCG Wellness Center and Department of Counseling and Educational Development are partnering with the FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture Monument Quilt Project to host a workshop on Wednesday, October 15, 2014, from 5-8 p.m. in the Cone Ballroom of the Elliott University Center at UNCG.

The event is free and open to all members of the community.

There will be two opportunities during the event:

  • First, all members of the community may drop-in during the hours of 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. to create a quilt square with messages of support for survivors.
  • Second, survivors of sexual violence or relationship abuse are invited to participate in a full-length workshop from 5-8 p.m. This workshop will be held in a separate location from the drop-in experience.
