TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)—Moms were in action on Saturday assembling soul boxes in honor of Gun Violence Survivor Week.

The Soul box project is a national project that aims to use visual art to bring meaning to the number of lives lost or changed by gun violence. These moms set a goal to create around 40 boxes Saturday.

The boxes created today were in remembrance of many including local people. Once completed the boxes a shipped to Washington D.C.

30,000 other boxes will join them and be displayed on the national mall in October. Jennifer Haan said this is an important message.

"58% of Americans have been affected by gun violence, adult Americans," said Haan. "That's a large amount. A lot of us know someone who's been taken by gun violence or who has been threatened by gun. Or who's life has been forever changed because of gun violence"

There was also another group in Hamilton County that participated in Saturday's event.
