LOVING QUILT On-Site SOLIDARITY QUILT creation: "DO I LOOK ILLEGAL?"
We are creating a LOVING Quilt panel and digital quilt from these images in solidarity with all people in Arizona and everywhere who are experiencing racial profiling, racist and anti-immigrant harassment and criminalization that keeps us from having our families protected, respected, reflected and connected.
ABOUT THE LOVING QUILT: A People's Living History of Marriage Equality and Family Justice Movements firstname.lastname@example.org
"... there is a deeper area, a wellspring which is resourceful, regenerative, and useful ... that place at the root of mind, below habits of thinking. It's at that level that we know as much as we can ever know about anything. That is the level at which we truly love, at which we truly exist ... and it's at that level that we experience human solidarity." ~ Sekou Sundiata (1948-2007)
These stories will be gathered in collaboration with THE LOVING QUILT 2010: A People's Living History of Marriage Equality & Family Justice Movements.
These stories were initially created as part of the Marriage Equality Movement Family Story Quilt which premiered at San Francisco City Hall on National Freedom to Marry Day in February 2007, honoring the historic Winter of Love and the 40th anniversary of the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court Loving vs. Virginia decision. These family stories- created in 2007- now have many updates, babies have been born, many couples have gotten legally married in California in 2008, some have divorced, some have won historic union battles and so much more ... stay tuned for 2010 updates!
