Toronto, May 21, 2015 Press Release: Faith Alliance to End Human Trafficking, a project born out of Catholic Religious congregations in and around Toronto, is launching the Gift Box project.
"Faith communities are working together to launch a project that will unwrap the truth about human trafficking in our province and our country. The unique GIFT Box experience will be introduced to Canada for the first time this summer by Faith Alliance to End Human Trafficking with a goal to end human trafficking by creating awareness and inspiring action."
"The oversized GIFT Box – designed by students at Toronto’s OCAD University – will be a walk-in piece of public art that draws people in with the same false promises traffickers use to entice their victims. Once inside the Box, the truth is unwrapped as visitors are introduced to the devastating realities of human trafficking, told through the voices of those who have lived experience."
"The Cathedral Church of St. James at King and Church Street in Toronto will be host to the Gift Box when it’s launched just before the start of the 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games."
The project gets underway July 10th as stated in the July press release:
Canada’S First ‘Gift Box’ Project Unwraps The Truth About Human Trafficking.
