Benefit to fight sex trafficking / Connexions / Easton, Pa
What caught my attention about this one? I did not realize this was happening in the Lehigh Valley, seriously. Thanks to Anthony at Connexions for placing me in touch with Kimberly Marshall Adams. Here is our Facebook conversation. I wanted to know more about this one. If you are interested, check out the event on Facebook. Find out what VAST is about and how they are helping.
In Ms. Adams own words...
Well, I'm far from being an expert, so the VAST website http://thevast.org/ will answer quite a bit of your questions; I think this organization grabbed me when I was considering a modeling marathon because of the idea that in sex trafficking, people's bodies are being used against them, and in a figure drawing session, a person's body is in their own control and being recognized for its beauty. I also like the idea of supporting a local organization; the LV art community is so talented and involved, and my hope is this cause will bring them out. There are also several new models who will be posing on Saturday so this is a chance for them to get their start; if you can, please mention the models (and musicians who are performing) are donating their time and I'm incredibly grateful for their generosity
