QUAPAW, Okla. (AP) - Organizers of a public monument quilt to rape survivors say a stop is being planned in Quapaw next month.

The Monument Quilt will visit the Robert Whitebird Cultural Center on Aug. 13. The visit is taking place thanks to a partnership between the Quapaw Tribe’s domestic violence program and the LEAD Agency.

Visitors will witness stories from survivors of sexual violence stitched together on 200 bright red quilt squares.

The traveling quilt is larger than two basketball courts put together and is part of an ongoing project to create public healing space for survivors of rape and abuse.

Organizers say the quilt provides clear and accessible steps to support survivors of rape and abuse when people don’t usually know where to begin.
