Image: June deadline set for “Waterfall of Solidarity and Resistance” quilt patches

Communities and individuals of all faiths and none are invited to make a powerful, international statement of their commitment to end rape and violence by contributing to the tapestry.

The tapestry will be designed as a waterfall with messages and images from around the world. In addition to the WCC 11th Assembly, it is intended to be displayed at other prominent locations, from the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva to the United Nations in New York.

The waterfall is based on the Thursdays in Black design, with the pilgrimage lines in white and purple.

Individuals and groups can prepare square cloth panels with images and messages that reflect their hope and commitment to overcome gender-based abuse and violence.

Patches should be sent to the World Council of Churches:
