The Soul Box exhibits showcase the true extent of the U.S. gunfire epidemic. Each Soul Box holds a physical space for a life lost or injured by gun violence, defense, accident or suicide. More than 200,000 origami Soul Boxes were made by people across the U.S. who care about this escalating health crisis.

Each one counts. Each one is seen. Each loss is felt.

Soul Boxes remember individuals lost or injured by any circumstance of shooting: violence, defense, accident or suicide. The exhibits represent and honor approximately 2,940 men, women and children SHOT in Michigan and Ohio in 5 ½ months. They represent people of every race, cultural background, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious or political affiliation.

The Soul Box Project envisions a society where all people living in the U.S. are encouraged to choose responsible ownership of firearms, so we can live in safe communities, talk to resolve conflicts, have schools focus on learning, gather to worship in peace and thrive in economies that foster trust and unity.
