Please consider lending your creativity to this project. It is arty and crafty, and you can do it with friends. Ultimately, a large piece of political art will be created and shared among people who believe that immigrants and asylum seekers should be treated compassionately, not thrown into profit-making jails
Work with others in your area to create a cloth square with 1,000 marks representing immigrants detained by ICE. The marks should fit on a piece of fabric 36 inches square. Design your square so that there is a one-inch border on each edge. That will allow us to sew them all together. Prewash your fabric. Then, get creative. Marks can be made by gluing something onto the fabric, stenciling, painting, stamping (design a stamp and order it online from a company such as Zazzle), or another idea you come up with.
