The Social Justice Sewing Academy took first place today at a national quilt show, QuiltCon in the youth category. I'm so pleased to have had the opportunity to work with this young artist Ann Guiam, who created this quilt at an SJSA workshop in Richmond, Ca. Ann was supported by Social Justice Sewing Academy Volunteers Dawn Gonzales and yours truly. I had the honor of quilting this poignant piece of social justice art. Here's Ann's Artist's Statement:
"America the Beautiful"
I created this quilt because of the mass shootings and terrorism that have occurred during my lifetime have unfortunately led me to question the true beauty of America. These acts of violence have impacted the lives of so many people both directly and indirectly and I hope this quilt brings awareness to this societal issue and also honors the lives of those who were harmed. The bottom half of the quilt simultaneously symbolizes the American flag and a classroom, because I worry that kids in school are learning to normalize these horrible events because they are so frequent. #endgunviolence #endthemadness #stopgunviolence #craftivism #youthart #socialjustice #socialjusticewarrior

SHOCKING ISN'T IT OR MAYBE COINCIDENTAL???? 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 THE TRUTH IS MOST OF THE MASS MURDERERS ARE HOME GROWN WHITE TERRORIST! THE GOVERNMENT MUST STOP DISRESPECTING PEOPLE WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES BY ALIGNING THEM WITH WHITE TERRORIST! GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS WANT TO CONTINUE LINING THEIR POCKETS WITH MONEY FROM THE NRA TO KEEP THE OLD GUN LAWS FROM GETTING CHANGED. WHILE INNOCENT CHILDREN AND ADULTS ARE BEING MURDERED! I PRAY FOR THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF THOSE WHO LOSS LOVED ONES. 😢😢😢😢😢 AND I PRAY THAT THE LAWS WILL IMMEDIATELY BE CHANGED TO TAKE AND KEEP WEAPONS OUT OF THE HANDS OF THOSE WHO WON'T USE THEM FOR INTENDED PURPOSES. 👊🏽👊🏽👊🏽👊🏽👊🏽👊🏽💯💯💯💯💯💯 #NEVERAGAIN

Arming teachers is not the answer, a major culture change is needed. Adding more guns to the gun problem is the definition of insanity. #stopgunviolence #fixtheproblem #demandchange #schoolsafety

This girl is Emma Gonzalez, survivor of the Florida shooting.
She had hidden herself in the amphitheater of the institute, while in the corridors a boy of his age with mental problems (entered the school with a RIFLE) killed his classmates and professors who tried to protect them.
The questions about how this massacre of young boys could have been avoided are many, but the most disturbing thing is that this is certainly not an isolated case in the United States.
Emma had the courage to tell the "President" Trump that he would not do anything about his prayers or his tears. We need laws. We need more control.
In America you can buy a firearm without even a document of identity, without even registering the weapon or assess the real need to own one.
The arms industry is now out of control.
But why does the "President" try at all costs to "confine" Mexico to prevent drug trafficking while letting the arms market grow exponentially?
$ 30 million, is the figure that received Mr. Trump from the National Rifle Association and is also the answer to the previous question.
I have been wondering since money is worth more than a human life. I wonder if the parents of these kids really can find comfort in compensation. I wonder why a 19-year-old boy with mental problems managed to buy a shotgun like a candy package. I wonder why "Mr. Trump" you talk about prayers and thoughts and do not talk about law and change. I wonder if you really need those 30 million dollars more. I wonder how you can keep silent in front of things like this.
Although this (fortunately) is not a problem that concerns Italy, we must make noise, we must make people understand the seriousness of this problem to everyone. It can not remain "closed" overseas, we must not be indifferent and expect solidarity when something happens in Europe.
We support the battle of this girl and a whole nation that says STOP!

The NRA did a great PR job during the CNN townhall meeting with students from @majorystonemandouglas high school. The NRA rep was an attractive “relatable” mother who wants us to believe how concerned the NRA is about gun safety and how she supports the students. Mmmm....really?! Or is this fine letter intimidating judicial candidates really the face of the NRA??? What do you think DOJ? Maybe want to investigate this? Oh and Senator Marco Rubio, who refused to say he would no longer accept NRA money because accepting money was about people buying into his agenda...even if I believed that, it’s a 2 way street. Accepting the NRAs money means you also buy into THEIR agenda. So @marcorubiofla do you buy into the NRA’s intimidation tactics as well? Does this reflect your values and your agenda? I respect the fact that you are actually one of the few moderate GOP members who is thoughtful and actually tries to govern....but please. Get on the right side of this issue. You know taking their money matters. #stopgunviolence #enough

Students from Montgomery Blair High School march in support of gun reform legislation in Silver Spring, Md., on Feb. 21. In the wake of last week's shooting in Parkland, Fla., where 17 people were killed, the students planned to take public transportation to the Capitol in Washington for a rally demanding legislation to curb gun violence in schools. The march was among a slew of walkouts across the country. Photograph by Win McNamee—@gettyimages.  So proud of these kids!!

I love that teenagers are leading the way. Your teachers will support you with every step. #banthear15 #neveragain #stopgunviolence (by Pia Guerra)
Over 2111 people have been shot and killed in the US since January 1st 2018. How about banning guns altogether?  Some might not agree with this route as guns do have other purposes, but I can guarantee it will stop the destruction of any more innocent lives as it has done in Florida, Las Vegas and so many more. One step forward suggesting banning bump stocks but two steps back suggesting teachers carry concealed weapons.

GUN CONTROL NOW!
.

In Florida, you don’t need a license to own a firearm.
.

You don’t have to register firearms.
.

You can buy as many firearms as you want at a time.
.

Firearms dealers don’t need state licenses.
.

Assault weapons, .50 caliber rifles and large capacity magazines aren’t regulated.
.
THIS IS ABOUT GUNS!
.

THIS IS ABOUT A NEED FOR GUN .
CONTROL AND GUN REGULATION.
.
The students that survived the shooting in Parkland last week are more than survivors, they are heroes. They have selflessly put their grief aside to help others. They are marching, they are protesting, they are giving speeches more eloquent than the man who currently resides in the oval office. They are demanding change for a better future and we all need to stand beside them. We all must say NEVER AGAIN. .
A HUGE THANK TOU to Alfonso Calderon, Sarah Chadwick, Jaclyn Corin, Emma González, David Hogg, Cameron Kasky, Delaney Tarr, Sofie Whitney, Alex Wind and every student who has been so brave so stand up and speak out for what is right. I was not nearly as badass as y'all in high school. .
What can the rest of us do to keep up with these amazing kids who are gonna take over the world and make it a better place?
.
To make your voice heard, contact the Capitol switchboard at (202)-224-3121. Once you're on the line, ask to be connected with your local representative in the House or Senate, and then you'll be transferred to their office to likely speak with their legislative assistant. Make sure your message is clear to them that you want to see real action taken on gun control to prevent tragedies like this one from happening again. Remember to only contact representatives from within your state in order to be the most effective in your pursuit of stronger gun control measures.
Join groups like Everytown for Gun Safety, @everytown , New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, and The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. These organizations works to end gun violence and make communities safer by focusing on issues like background checks and gun trafficking.

FUCK YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.
.
That day members of Congress bowed their heads in a moment of silence. They tweeted their thoughts and prayers as they have with every shooting before this one. .
It's always the same.
. "Thoughts and Prayers" and in a few short weeks they move on, as if none of this ever happened. As if 50 people weren't murdered in Orlando during the Pulse Nightclub shooting. As if 59 people weren't murdered at a concert in Las Vegas last October. As if 20 six and seven year old children and 6 adults weren't murdered in Sandy Hook . As if the shootings in Littleton, Colorado (December 31, 2017) or Corning, California (November 14, 2017 - 6 killed, 12 injured) and so many others never happened because they didn't pick up enough steam in the media for people to really care.
17 people lost their lives in Parkland, Florida last week.
We cannot allow them to be forgotten this time. The politicians who’ve spent the last week offering their thoughts and prayers aren’t doing their jobs.
.
.

Immediately following the attack, in an address to the nation, President Trump announced he would visit Parkland and work with the nation’s governors “to help secure our schools, and tackle the difficult issue of mental health.” He made no mention of guns. 
We do need to talk about mental health. About physical health. About the lack of care that’s afforded to the average American. But that conversation is for another day. We will not stand by and allow the politicians in this country to obfuscate and distract from the need for gun control. Right now, we need to stop pointing fingers at the FBI, the communities which have been shattered, as sad as it is to say, the victims, who are being brutally attacked in the media. We need to stand together and demand action from our legislators.

Right now, we need to stop pointing fingers at the FBI, the communities which have been shattered, as sad as it is to say, the victims, who are being brutally attacked in the media. We need to stand together and demand action from our legislators. . . . . . #neveragain  #protestcake  #protest  #changenow  #everytown  #parkland  #msdstrong  #activism  #speakup  #guncontrol  #guncontrolnow  #reform  #votethemout  #bombesquad  #foodwinewomen  #feministfood  #feedtherevolution  #thoughtsandprayers  #fuckyourthoughtsandprayers  #thebakerylady  #bakerylady  #marchforourlives  #stopgunviolence

TELL THEM I LOVE THEM SO MUCH
.
I got home from work on Valentine’s Day at around 11:30pm. Maybe it was almost midnight. I was exhausted from making a million heart shaped cookies, waiting tables all night and just general adult life. I walked Buck around the block, changed into my coziest sweats and hit the sheets. Before saying goodnight to my beloved pup, I made a huge mistake…. I checked twitter. .
My entire twitter feed was flooded with news about the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. I sat there, reading through screenshots of students desperately trying to reach their parents and siblings. A girl named Hannah texted her sister Kaitlin to tell her what was happening during the attack and to ask her to call 911. She couldn’t get through on the phone to the authorities or their parents and so she plead with her sister, repeatedly saying “tell them I love them so much”. That was the first thing I read about the Parkland shooting and I sat in my bed sobbing for an hour.
.
Reading those messaged made me so sad, and so angry.

(and to hannah and her sister kaitlin. i’m so glad you’re both safe and got to tell each other i love you in person again ❤️)
