UN Gift Box at BC to combat Human Trafficking

A committee is bringing a UN GIFT Box to the city of Boston and the Boston College campus to help raise awareness about human trafficking. The UN GIFT Box was launched during the London Olympics in 2012 in partnership with Stop the Traffik. GIFT boxes are “walk-in pieces of public art that people encounter at street level that entice people inside by luring them with enticing promises.” Once inside viewers are shocked to learn about the dangers of human trafficking. 

Boston College R.E.A.C.T. (Rallying Efforts Against Contemporary Trafficking) in collaboration with Deb O’Hara-Rusckowski from the UN NGO Committee to Stop Trafficking in Persons (CSTIP), . The box will be located in front of Stokes Hall from April 24th - April 29th (closed on Sunday).
