Since 2006, more than 140 people have been killed by the Chicago Police or while in police custody. Gone But Not Forgotten is a community quilting project, documenting the names and lives of these individuals. Over the last year, more than 150 individuals have participated in combination quilting circles/peace circles across Chicago. In partnership with grassroots groups, religious organizations, art spaces and schools, we are sewing together the memories of those lost to police violence, while discussing questions of transformative justice, police accountability, and community safety.
Now we need your help to complete the Gone But Not Forgotten quilt and display it in a multi-media art installation this fall. Please consider a gift to support this project!
