Soul Box Project @ Rose Schnitzer Manor, CSP | Portland | Oregon | United States
The Soul Box Project’s goal is to create a visual representation to make gunfire victims visible – a mind-boggling, heart-wrenching representation of the 168,558 people killed or injured by gunfire from 2014 to 2017.

The Project collects hand-folded paper boxes – a Soul Box – for every person killed or injured by gunfire in the United States since 2014, which will be displayed as art installations. The first large-scale installation of 36,000 Soul Boxes – representing the average number of people shot every year in the U.S. – will be displayed at the Oregon State Capitol on Feb. 15, 2019. Leslie Lee, local visual artist and Soul Box founder, has a vision for 200,000 boxes to be on the National Mall by 2020.

Use your creativity to take a stand against gun violence, while spending an evening with friends and neighbors. Cedar Sinai Park has partnered with the Soul Box Project – a project coordinated locally, to have a national impact.
Join us  and use the creative materials we provide to create your own paper origami “soul box,” which will make its way with others on a traveling display to promote dialogue and political action.
