Violet Protest Lapel Pin

$ 10.00

The Violet Protest is a public effort to send 50 hand-made ​textile squares to each and every member of Congress ​in support of these core American values:

  • Respect for the other
  • Citizenship
  • Compromise
  • Country over party and corporate influence
  • Courage
  • Candor
  • Compassion
  • Creativity

Whether we weave, knit, crochet, quilt, or embroider all 26,750 of these squares — through this social action, and from every corner of America; we as makers of all political persuasions, believe we can employ our willing spirit and our talents to contribute to healing divisions that threaten our country. ​This collection of textile squares will be first displayed at Phoenix Art Museum, in the Spring of 2021, before they are sent to the new ​117th Congress by late 2021.
