Experience This Loss We Carry
Over 70,000 Soul Boxes will represent the number of deaths and injuries from gunfire in just one year. A corridor of Boxes on display panels will be flanked by bags of Boxes carried into the exhibit on Saturday morning and out again on Sunday. Deepen the meaning of this exhibit by being in the processions or volunteering in other capacities.
Attend our Portland exhibit in June and provide feedback to help us ensure successful messaging and installation on the National Mall in October.
You can also learn to fold a Soul Box at this event and get information from other related organizations at our Action Resources tables.

Help us reach our 200,000 goal; bring in the Soul Boxes you've made.
A Pop-Up Exhibit of 300 Soul Boxes is accompanying a display of books on social justice themes in the shop window of this California independent bookseller. These Boxes represent a selection of the 3,000+ Soul Boxes made by area Moms Demand Action groups. Contact us to learn for tips on making your own Pop-Up exhibit.
Art is an important tool that many of us turn to in order to process our emotions, explore our fears, and rediscover our strengths. In this exhibit, artists share with us their process and creations that helped them work through difficult times or make connections with others. Over 300 Soul Boxes made through the Indiana Chapter of Moms Demand Action are part of the exhibit.
May 7 - June 24.
