Week Thirteen

It is our time. 
This injustice must end. 
This week, you can take a practical step to
Human Trafficking. 

This week, we will be uniting to complete the
Traffic Free Fashion Challenge. 

Did you know the clothes you are wearing every day may have been made by slaves?
One example is India, where there are over 200,000 girls age 14-23 who have been trafficked in order to work in the cotton industry in the Tamil Nadu region of India.

Most retailers and fashion labels either don’t know where they buy their cotton from
or they choose not to make that information public. 

But we want to be able to choose Traffic-Free fashion.

This week, you will send an email or letter to a fashion brand of your choice.  
Urge them to take action to ensure no human trafficking takes place within their supply chain. 

Below, you will  find everything you need to complete this challenge including a sample letter, a protocol document to send the company, and a list of companies and their addresses!
All of these resources come from the amazing organization Stop The Traffik. (www.StopTheTraffik.org) 

We, as consumers, have a powerful voice in this world.
Let’s use it this week to make a difference.

Post a picture on social media of an article of clothing and, in the description,
bring awareness to the slavery that exists in our world. 
Make sure you use the hashtag #GenDWeeklyChallenge in your posts and include a link to our website o others can join in on these challenges.
