“The Weeping Willow, installed at Gather DTLA and facilitated by Threadwinners, represents the tears shed by each of the 2,000+ children who have been separated from their parents under the Trump regime’s “zero-tolerance” policy. Each teardrop leaf, created by hand, also represents the public and personal sorrow over the trauma inflicted on these young people…”
Threadwinners and Gather are asking for the community to get involved, too! We are raising funds to donate to the ACLU and their efforts to fight unfair immigration practices and keep families together and encouraging crafters to use the Teardrop Leaf pattern to add to the Weeping Willow.
“The Weeping Willow tree will be a living installation, as it will grow with teardrop leaves created and donated by members of the fiber arts community. 100% of monetary proceeds earned will be donated to the ACLU to help them continue the important work that they do.”
