An interactive program includes viewing and discussing the messages of the quilts, a panel on the development of the quilts with cooperation from survivors, art forms for educating and raising public awareness, and discussion of possibilities for legal accountability. 

Event Details: Sign in at 11:30 for coffee and interactive process. Panel at noon followed by discussion and further interaction on strategies for justice.
