Why One Dress?

Many of the girls who are trafficked only have One Dress.
We are wearing One Dress to remind us each day that wearing only One Dress is reality for these girls.

1 Week!!

To Friends,

"Recently the FBI named Atlanta as one of 14 cities in the nation with the highest incidence of children used in prostitution.  With the average age of entry between 12 and 14 years old" (Georgia's Governor's office for Children and Families) There are 242 girls being exploited in Georgia every month.  3 times a day, day after day (http://www.streetgrace.org/)

We have felt convicted to make ourselves more aware of sex trafficking happening in our own city of Atlanta.  In hopes of raising awareness, we have decided to wear the same One Dress for the month of July.  We will post what we learn about sex trafficking on this blog in order to spread the knowledge and encourage others to take action.

We would love to have other women join us in wearing One Dress.  If you are interested, please email us at onedressjuly@gmail.com.

Peace and Grace,
Christy and Laura

  1. This is cool! I wish I didn't have a job that requires me to wear pants or shorts (dresses don't really mix well with paint and power tools) or I would consider doing this too.
