‘Freedom is Possible’ sews against sex trafficking

These girls have sewed for days, not hours. Won’t you consider how you can help this cause?

Senior fashion design students Evelyn Rossol and Anna Honerlaw have been sewing since early September to create a spark in the fight against sex trafficking.

“I have had this plush plush life, and there are girls that are younger than me that are getting sold by their parents,” Rossol said.

“Operation Hope: Freedom is Possible”, a theatrical fashion show written, designed and directed by Rossol and Honerlaw was created to raise awareness for victims of human trafficking. (Friday, March 9, 2018 at Kent State).

This event is hosted by International Justice Mission — Kent Campus Chapter (IJM), a global human rights organization that helps save victims of slavery and sexual exploitation.

The event is a reflection of two possibilities for victims.

“It shows one, in a hopeless world without organizations like IJM, and then one in which IJM comes in and says, ‘Hey you don’t have to be here, we are going to help you out of this,’” Rossol said.

Rossol and Honerlaw both wanted to discover a way to educate people about the reality of sexual exploitation. . . .
