The 2020 Human Trafficking Institute report acknowledged that 89% of child victims were between the ages of 14 and 17 years old. Oftentimes those most at-risk are members of vulnerable communities with multiple marginalized identities. I am committed to ensuring the safety and overall well being of children everywhere, and prevention work is absolutely necessary for protecting these groups
The Dressember Network provides vital research and resources to the anti-trafficking movement, and also supports prevention programs among vulnerable youth in the U.S. and beyond. By giving to Dressember, you help provide training and support to prevent children from becoming victims in the first place. Some of the ways Dressember does this is through foster care support programs, LGBTQ+ youth training and care, and more. Thank you for taking a stand with me to protect vulnerable youth.
I am collaborating with Dressember, to fundraise monies toward the fight against human trafficking. In support of my campaign and to raise awareness, I will be wearing this dress everyday in the month of December (styled in different ways). Rather than buy clothing & shoes during the month, I will be placing these funds toward my efforts.
a latte of sparkles & giggles until next time,
