Three members of HLGU’s Students Against Sexual Assault (SASA) organization are taking a stand and raising awareness for human trafficking by participating in Dressember.

Dressember is sponsored by the Dressember Foundation which raises funds to help those caught in human and/or sex trafficking. Dressember participants help spread awareness of the world issue by committing to wearing a dress every day for the 31-day winter month.

During Dressember, those participating spread the word about what they are doing and why, compelling others to contribute to the cause.

HLGU’s SASA has set up an online donation site and is only $25 away from their goal of raising $1,000 to help in the fight against human trafficking.

“I am proud of what SASA is doing and their desire to not only educate, but take action and make a difference,” said Jake King, SASA sponsor for HLGU.

“I'm participating in Dressember because I believe in the power of leveraging a small decision as an opportunity to advocate,” said SASA member Cassidy Winters in a Facebook post. “My dress [is] the constant reminder that I am free. That is a bigger blessing than I can even begin to comprehend. Don't forget those who are in slavery. Don't let the craziness of life make you forget about those in need. Donate to Dressember to allow these girls the chance to be saved from darkness.”
