An alternative to shopping on Black Friday, Frau Fiber hosted a Mend America stitch in. Knocking off an American Flag, Cutting Map pieces, and while contemplating the future of America.

Thank you for supporting the National Endowment of the Arts and Humanities by drafting the letter which highlighted the cultural economy. As you know the United States is a country of innovators and creative problem solvers, and we must continue to fight for this crucial funding, and try and gain more.
This letter was sent to the Senators listed below:
Thank you for supporting the National Endowment of the Arts and Humanities by signing the letter written by Senator Kristen Gillbrand. The United States is a country of innovators and creative problem solvers, and the Federal Governments small support crucial.
I urge you to save the vital resources of the NEA and NEH, these the arts and humanities serve as drivers of innovation and economic prosperity. The US Bureau of Economic Analysis report that the arts and humanities sector is a $704 billion industry, accounting for 4.2 percent of the nation’s GDP. Isn’t continued investment in NEA and NEH proving to be a profitable pay off?

You can help to Mend America, if you live the words from The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus:
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Dear Mr. Ryan,
Planned Parenthood serves hundreds of thousands of people providing essential services, including birth control, gynecological care, and HIV and STD testing and treatment; no matter what, regardless of insurance, immigration status, or ability to pay. This is what MAKES AMERICA GREAT. Step out of your white privilege, separate your religion from your service to the people. Do not defund Planned Parenthood, unless you want to make America sick again

Dear Ms. Conway, as part of the White Staff, you are now a public servant to the people of America. How dare you use your power to tell us what to purchase! In the future think before you speak, and you can help Mend America instead of creating further tears.
Thank you for your Service
Your rulings (arguments) gave me a glimmer of hope, that America can be mended. The judicial seems to be the most functional branch of government in this moment.
Thank you for your Service.

How you could concede to the Trump agenda? Please, Mend America! Stand up for justice, and democracy. Find the common ground across party lines, model what non-partisan dialog can look like. We need to find commonality and gain consensus in service of the American people.
