QUILT MAKING HAS SUCH A POWERFUL STORYTELLING TRADITION AND DEEP HISTORY IN THE SOUTH, PARTICULARLY WITHIN THE BLACK COMMUNITY
The Quilt is a powerful teaching tool that brings generations together to raise awareness about the ongoing epidemic, and the effect stigma and prejudice continue to have on the disproportionate impact of HIV/AIDS within communities of color. You do not need to be an artist or know how to sew to create a moving personal tribute. Whether you choose to paint on a bed sheet or sew elaborate embroidery is up to you -- any remembrance is appropriate.
EVERY STITCH SEWN WITH LOVE
Our Call My Name panel making program ensures the stories of Black and Brown lives lost to HIV/AIDS are honored with panels on the AIDS Memorial Quilt. Through the making and display of panels this powerful program is helping ensure the Quilt reflects the epidemic's impact within marginalized and communities of color.
Help us call the names of these lives lost to HIV/AIDS by making a panel for the AIDS Memorial Quilt that honors, celebrates, and remembers their stories.
