It will be displayed on the City College of San Francisco football field (Ocean near Phelan), from 12:00pm – 4:00 pm. By providing a public healing space, the quilt is building a new culture where survivors are supported, not shamed.

Co-sponsors are the college’s Physical Education and Dance Department, the Women’s Studies Department, and Student Health Services.
