Ann Morton with the Violet Protest is our guest speaker this month.
What is the Violet Protest and how did it all get started? This month’s speaker will be Zooming with us to tell us all about it.
A little info: The Violet Protest is a pubic effort to send 50 hand-made textile squares to each and every member of Congress in support of these core American values: Civility and Respect, Citizenship, Compromise, Country over party and corporate influence, courage, candor, compassion, and creativity.
That means that they will need 26,750 red and blue 8” x 8”
squares. They will be exhibited at Phoenix Art Museum in 2021.and 50 will be sent to each and every senator and representative of the new 117th Congress of the United States in late 2021. THE DEADLINE FOR FINISHED SQUARES IS NOVEMBER 15, 2020. Think about volunteering to make some blocks.
