For the 10th stop in their 13-city tour, Force — a sexual abuse prevention group — and rape survivors presented the Monument Quilt.

The first-ever public monument to survivors of rape and abuse was laid out in Flushing Meadows Corona Park between the Queens Museum and the Unisphere.

About 225 stories are stitched onto the red fabric. Queens women were invited to include their own stories on the quilt.
