We, the Heritage Quilters, are a community of women and men from Warren and Vance County, North Carolina. In addition to quilting, we are teachers, community leaders and organizers, medical staff, poets, healers, pastors, artists, organizers, engineers, mental health care workers, and writers. We are mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, and uncles.
In these times of uncertainty and crises, we need to look inward and reflect on our values and contributions to humanity, and particularly valuing the lives of Black and Brown people.
The arts are especially important as a form of creative expression and healing. For a thriving and healthy community, the Heritage Quilters encourage voting, completing the census, addressing food insecurity, and promoting dialogue.
