TAB Brown Publishing's creative team realizes that the HIV/AIDS virus is rooted, at least in part, in poor lifestyle choices, and that the choices themselves often have their horrible beginnings in family and community dysfunctions. Linda Jordan aimed to undo those cycles. As a memorial honoring the late activist, TAB Brown Publishing worked with Master Quilter Edjohnetta Miller and the OPUS ART INC. youth project in Hartford to develop a Patches of Healing Community Quilt Project. The project launched as Crooked Road Straight hit bookstores.

TAB Brown Publishing seeks volunteer master and novice quilters at churches, community centers and quilting bees who are committed to sewing for change, and to remembering their own loved ones who died from HIV/AIDS.
