PROJECTS BY OUR PARTNERS
The Soul Box Project collects and exhibits thousands of hand-folded origami boxes to raise awareness of the U.S. gunfire epidemic. Each Soul Box holds space for one life lost or injured by gun violence, defense, accident or suicide. Participants MAKE A BOX to hold space for a life lost or torn apart by gun violence and SEND IT IN to join thousands of Soul Boxes in public exhibits where the number of victims is seen and felt.
My Last Will #ENOUGH sponsor Change the Ref teams up with Brady United's Team ENOUGH to solicit young people to write their last will and testament in the event of their death by gun violence and urges senators to pass stronger gun laws to end America's surging gun violence epidemic.
#ENOUGH is proud to highlight the following ARTIVISM (art + activism) projects also confronting gun violence. Deepen your #ENOUGH experience and broaden your community's engagement by exploring these innovative responses to gun violence.
