What is systemic domestic violence? Systemic domestic violence is the cycle of domestic violence that continues because of “gaps”, including implicit bias and policies, that prevent community members from being able to use services. Victims, survivors, and witnesses don’t speak up due to fear — fear of shame, blame, guilt. The Tucson Quilt Project “Create A Square” project helps our community build habits in “speaking up” by empowering our community to express ourselves, without shame, blame, or guilt.
The Surly Wench Pub, The House of Rossi, and Felicia Chew Community Projects are teaming up to end systemic domestic violence!
Will you join us on August 26 from 6-9p to check out some up and coming local bands, support local businesswomen, and participate in a community art project with the Tucson Quilt Project and help end systemic domestic violence?
1. Great food and drink from the kitchen and bar!
2. Live music from The House of Rossi!
3. Create a paper square (and your own personal quilt) that will be a part of a community “quilt” that shares our voices with our community! (More info at www.facebook.com/tucsonquiltproject and www.feliciachew.com/tucsonquiltproject)
4. Suggested donation includes three hours or live music and all materials for creating a square for a community quilt. Proceeds go to helping end systemic domestic violence (www.feliciachew.com/dvss)
