March of the Quilt
Inspired by the AIDS Quilt, The Border Quilt expresses how militarization has resulted in losses for border residents. On 2’ x 4’ cloth panels, border residents tell stories of lives lost, loss of civil rights, loss of security, and loss of humanity.
The Border Quilt will start its pilgrimage in Arizona on March 30 and will continue to travel in New Mexico, Texas, and northern border communities.
Follow its journey by visiting this website regularly.
