Don’t Label Me Fashion Show to benefit Stop Child Trafficking Now and Art Link

 

Stop Child Trafficking NowClarksville, TN – Fashion is everywhere, the clothes we wear, the magazines we read, and the television shows we watch. On Saturday, May 5th, local designers and stylists will come together for the first ever Don’t Label Me Fashion Show, a Labels in Lights Production, to benefit Stop Child Trafficking Now and Art Link.

This first ever fashion show will take place at the Riverview Inn located at 50 College Street at 6:00pm.

The show will feature designs from Sacer Savive, Fleur de Lis, Ferocity Jewelry, Flower Lily, Prodigy and more.

Stop Child Trafficking Now (www.SCTNow.org) is a 501c3 non-profit organization that funds efforts that target the demand side of child sex slavery. Child Sex Trafficking is a form of modern day slavery that if left unchallenged will wreak havoc on its innocent victims and in our society. The simple economic principle of supply and demand drives the industry. Where demand exists, supply also exists.

In 2011 the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation released its first ever study on Human Sex Trafficking and it’s Impact on Children and Youth. In that study, TBI revealed that 16-25 cases of minor (child) sex trafficking had been reported in Montgomery County from May 2009-2011. This is a local issue. This is happening in our community.
