The Little Black Dress Project

March 1 - March 31

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 bi-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 the Little Black Dress 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 whom are begging for an intervention while becoming a little more free from what holds ourselves.
