Along with dozens of National Honor Society members and many other teachers at the school where I work, I collaborate this month to raise awareness and funding for the victims of human trafficking. "It’s estimated that there are currently over 30 million people trapped in slavery—more than any other point in history." That number is absolutely astounding to me.
Wearing a dress for an entire month offers more than fun fashion or a professional appearance; it's an opportunity to share stories with others. Founder Blythe Hill's Ted Talk resonated with me and made me realize how many women live in fear and danger around the world.
The excitement in the school continues to grow and many students tell me that they plan to continue to raise money and awareness about this problem long after the month of December ends. I am happy to be a part of such a positive movement.
