As an immigrant, artist, and activist, Sohn turned to art and used social media to inspire others to join in her monumental art activism project: creating 25 million hand-sewn stitches, each representing a single displaced human being. It quickly grew and reached its goal in a matter of months 鈥 with contributions from 2,300 stitchers on six continents, 37 nations and in all 50 states.听听
