The Monarch Project

The Monarch Project



The Monarch Project aims to spread a message of love and acceptance for immigrants, regardless 0f their documentation,  all across Sonoma County and beyond. Our artists and activists paint monarch butterflies on the walls of businesses, libraries, all kinds of other public places.

Each butterfly comes with a QR code that will bring them to this page where the locations of all the others are displayed, and the story of each butterfly is told.

We challenge everyone to find these butterflies and to listen to the stories they represent.

If you are a business, organization, or individual interesting in hosting a butterfly, please get in touch with us!

Sonoma County has been and continues to be a county of immigrants. In today’s volatile political climate, the basic rights of immigrants are being violated. We believe that immigrants are a key part of our society and economy and we refuse to allow such injustices to continue. We believe that people outweigh politics and that protecting the human rights of immigrants should not be a partisan affair. We envision a future in which immigrants are celebrated for their invaluable presence in our society, and a future in which our undocumented peers no longer have to live in fear and hiding.
