Why Youth for Human Rights of Florida is sponsoring a fashion show?

Why Youth for Human Rights of Florida is sponsoring a fashion show?

On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights". The pursuit of human rights was a central reason for creating the UN. World War II atrocities and genocide led to a ready consensus that the new organization must work to prevent any similar tragedies in the future.
However still today approximately 600,000 to 800,000 victims annually are trafficked across international borders worldwide, and between 14,500 and 17,500 of those victims are trafficked into the U.S., according to the U.S. Department of State. These estimated include women, men and children. Victims are generally trafficked into the U.S. from Asia, Central and South America, and Eastern Europe. Many victims trafficked into the United States do not speak and understand English and are therefore isolated and unable to communicate with service providers, law enforcement and others who might be able to help them.
As humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard stated, "Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream"

To help make human rights a reality the Tampa Youth for Human Rights of Florida is sponsoring a fashion show in which attendees will also be educated on the reality of modern-day slavery while providing a solution – support clothing manufacturers who only employ workers at fair exchange. The “Colors of the World” fair trade fashion show will be held on Saturday, June 9th in Ybor City.
