In order to increase Texans’ cognizance to this horror, The Time Group, a Dallas based marketing and PR firm, has joined with The Texas Restaurant Association and the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association to support It’s Going To Be OK, Inc., Dallas and Uganda Anti-Human Trafficking Awareness & Girl Education Initiative. On April 4, 2020, a Black & White Designer Fashion Show & Brunch will be hosted by 3015 at Trinity Groves, Dallas. Tickets for this event are available at www.bwfashionshow.eventbrite.com. Black & White was chosen as a reminder that when victims are captured, they are in a dark, black place; but when rescued, they come into the light and can have a bright future.
“We’re excited to have the spotlight put on this critical issue,” said Tonya Stafford, Founder, CEO and Board President for It’s Going To Be Okay, Inc.
The fashion show will feature exclusive designs created by Fashion Designer, Terri Ives of Terri Ives Couture.
