Audio Interference 40: The Monument Quilt

“I think we are, as immigrants, left out. Our voices are erased from the narrative. It’s not that we don’t want to tell our stories. It’s that there are no spaces for us to tell our stories.” – Lorena Kourousias

This episode of Audio Interference focuses on the Monument Quilt, a collective art project and an on-going collection of stories from survivors of rape and abuse, written, stitched, and painted onto red fabric. We speak with Lorena Kourousias, a social worker and activist who works with immigrant women, about the Monument Quilt’s project at the US-Mexico border on the 100th day of Trump’s presidency.
