A continual myth about human trafficking is that it happens “over there.” Unfortunately, the United States is not exempt from the list of 127 countries where human trafficking has been reported and none of the 50 states have a clean record, either. That means, if you live in the United States, you need to be aware of what goes on in your own communities and neighborhoods. The Dressember Network works to fight trafficking locally and internationally. The battle to end human trafficking is personal and closer to home than we typically feel comfortable acknowledging. Join the fight by following @dressember and donating.
This month has been as much of a learning experience for me as everyone else who is following along. I am advocating this month in support of Dressember and what is stands for – fighting, intervening, and protecting victims of human trafficking. By wearing a dress everyday I hope to inspire others to ask questions and donate to the cause. Here are just a few dresses that I have worn so far!
Dressember has a lot of resources on their website including a blog. Check out their latest article about human trafficking during the COVID-19 Pandemic here.
As always thanks for supporting.
