Mensen is partnering with Ray of Hope and INCITE! to create an interactive art and narrative collaboration. Participants will be invited to trace their hands on a template and cut them out, draw an eye in the middle of the hand, and write their messages of hope, healing and affirmation to other Sisters who have experienced violence. These hands will then be stapled together into a chain, which will be carried throughout the march, weaving survivors, allies and participants together to collectively carry their message of hope.
