Description

This week, Dee and Jayvn talked to Christine Ilewski, founder and executive director at Faces Not Forgotten.

Don't forget to listen to part one! 

Faces Not Forgotten was formed in 2010 to serve the dual mission of giving comfort to families who have lost a child (age 20 and under) to gun violence and to raise awareness of this devastating loss to our society.

To date, they have completed 30 FNF Quilts including over 250 portraits nationally (70 in the St. Louis area) of children age 20 and under who have died as the result of gun violence. The demographic of these portraits shows the glaring disparity in numbers of black children who are disproportionately killed by daily gun violence due to the consequences of historically systemic racism.

FNF collaborates with national artists and artist students to complete the original portraits, which are donated to the victims’ families.

To learn more about the organization, head to their website at www.facesnotforgotten.com. where information on how to join the project as an artist or to receive a portrait can be found.
