Photos from our 45,000 Quilt display

A short video of our April 6 through 8 presentation of the 45,000 quilt is available HERE.

The 45,000 Quilt Exhibit brings together the work of over 60 immigrant justice activists and artists from 12 states and Mexico. Each of the six, 9’ by 9’ panels contain 1000 marks to represent 1000 immigrants placed in detention daily. “The inspiration for the project was the huge number 45,000” said project founder Glen Ring, a member of the Kent St Coalition from Concord NH. 45,000(and often more) is the average number of immigrants detained by ICE per day in 2019.Fleeing violence, poverty, natural disasters and the effects of climate change are the reasons people seek asylum and they are detained or jailed, often in private for-profit detention centers for these “crimes”.
