Hear How Fashion is Combating Human Trafficking
Led by our @beautyforfreedom Co-Founder and BabsonAlum Jerry Chu, BFF was thrilled to present a “Fashion And Philanthropy” Presentation to Babson Fashion Group at Babson College Students this week engaging in socially conscious issues that affect all of us.
“How Fashion is Combating Human Trafficking” and “Giving a Voice to the Voiceless” were our topics and the students were truly engaged! We presented several of our advocacy campaigns integrating fashion as a tool to empower and raise awareness for causes. Our #KeepTheGirlsSafeCampaign, a partnership between BFF and Prink Shop was featured and the models for this shoot were youth interested in activism and supermodel Diandra Forrest
