We are a featured partner by the LBD.Project which is an organization which helps raise awareness for victims of human trafficking. Here is an overview in their words of who they areand what they do:
"Each year, people scattered around the country choose a black article of clothing and wear it for a month. It is a personal challenge, limiting our freedom in a small way (and as a by-product, we prove that clothing, appearance, and having more stuff doesn't define us). We use less as an act of determination--a fast of sorts--to focus on those who have been forced, used, mistreated, and abandoned. These are the modern slaves of our world, also known as victims of human trafficking. As we wear the same thing, we experience what it is like in one small way to have limited choice. Our freedom is only slightly limited, whereas the freedom of the trafficking victims we represent has been unjustly stolen from them. We use this purposeful limiting of our freedom to ignite a greater awareness of human trafficking around us. By using the internet to share often about theLBD.Project, whether through pictures of ourselves or with facts and stories about trafficking, we continue to shed light on this evil, bringing it out of the darkness, and invite our circles into this fight for justice and compassion. We work towards a common goal, fundraising for various anti-trafficking organizations. So together, for a month, we don our black dresses and shirts and suits and skirts and fishnet leggings in order to raise awareness and funds for those who are begging for an intervention while becoming a little more free from what holds ourselves."
If you would like to help keep Sisters of the Streets financially ready to assist survivors, please make a donation this month of March to help us reach our goal of $5,000!
With the money raised, we'll put $3,000 towards direct survivor support, and the other $2,000 to compensate lived experience experts for different projects we're working on this year.
Thank You for being a vital part of our movement!
We look forward to helping raise awareness with you and everyone else involved in the LBD.Project. - Make sure to keep up with us on Facebook & Instagram for updates, additional ways you can support survivors, and more information on the LBD.Project.
