The quilts made at Social Justice Sewing Academy workshops are artistic ammunition in the growing national debate about gun control. They form an essential textile art exhibit for anyone interested in understanding the historic connections between racism and gun violence, and the impact of both, on young people in the United States.
Ammunition: Youth Responses to Gun Violence is a powerful show that gives voice and agency to young people who are often the victims of gun violence but are regularly excluded from gun violence debates. Sara Trail, founder of the Social Justice Sewing Academy, believes these quilts can bring increased visibility to children and youth in the gun violence debate. Showcasing the work of young activists and textile artists, this exhibit brings together powerful quilts that address school shootings, police brutality, racially motivated violence, and activism.
