The Bureau of Investigative Journalism has just released the names of almost 300 victims of combat drones through their “Naming the Dead” project. That means that we need a lot more quilt blocks to be made so that we can honor and memorialize these victims who have been brutally murdered by our government.
Please help me spread the word! Making the blocks can be a wonderful group project for children, young people and adults. And I want to remind you that you definitely don’t have to know how to quilt or sew to make a block. You can use fabric paint or markers, glue on decorations, and use your imagination and creativity to make your block.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the name of a drone victim for your block. Instructions for making the blocks can be found on this website.
In peace and solidarity,
