FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture was founded in 2010 by and for survivors as an art and activist collective dedicated to constructing a culture of consent. FORCE is an intersectional, LGBTQ focused, multicultural, pro-black and anti-white supremacist collective, who has done our deepest organizing work in Baltimore and Mexico City, and has planted seeds globally. With a focus on local organizing in our home bases, we strive for our visual imagery, language, resources, and organizing strategies to have a global impact in our efforts to end sexual and intimate partner violence by changing social attitudes and connecting these shifts to policy change.

FORCE's largest project to date is the Monument Quilt, a collection of stories from survivors of rape and abuse, written, painted and stitched onto red quilt squares. These stories came together to blanket highly public places, assembling each quilt to spell the words "Not Alone." May 31-June 2, 2019, it blanketed the National Mall.
In Baltimore, FORCE is organizing with survivors through Gather Together, a survivor collective creating a community for support, healing and advocacy. We are also launching our second season of Youth Voices for Consent, a youth-led program for young people to discuss issues of power and consent while creating innovative consent culture campaigns through art and performance.

FORCE is fiscally sponsored by Strong City Baltimore, a 501(c)3. All donations are tax-deductible.
