This Sunday, October 14, 2018, after the 11 o’clock service we will have a field trip and conversation. Join us in a visit to the GIFT Box installed a few blocks away in Union Square. It is a walk-in street-sculpture which on the outside appears to be an elaborately wrapped gift inviting visitors inside with gift tags promising jobs and opportunities. Once inside, visitors are faced with a different reality; stories from survivors of human trafficking around the world who were lured in by such promises. Originally launched at the London Olympics in 2012, this unique project raises awareness of human trafficking by inviting visitors to read stories and talk with volunteers. The GIFT Box is sponsored in part by the Episcopal Diocese of New York’s Task Force on Human Trafficking. Afterward will will talk about how we might respond.
