Get Started

Bones are universal. Bones are strong. Bones symbolize our common humanity. They are the physical evidence that individuals, people, ever existed. The bone laying is the intersection of art and activism, of education and action, and it will remind us that we belong to each other.

The deadline to make and send in bones was May 15. Thank you for helping us reach our goal of 1,000,000 bones on the National Mall!

Promotional Tools

D.I.Y. Media Toolkit

We have a number of easy-to-use, customizable resources - including a media advisory and a fact sheet - that you can use to "pitch" a story about your community event to local media outlets. While it’s always smart to reach out to local television stations and print media, don’t forget about blogs, alternative weeklies, neighborhood newsletters, or college newspapers! Our Media Toolkit includes a Media Advisory, a press fact sheet and general fact sheet for event participants, suggestions for interacting with the media, and ideas for spreading word about your event via social media.
