But today, I’m excited to announce that I will be joining the board of directors for UNCHAINED. This unique nonprofit uses artistic expression to raise awareness about human trafficking and ignite abolitionists worldwide.

“Christopher Stollar is a published writer, an activist for human trafficking and a member of the UNCHAINED board,” the organization announced. “Pick up his book The Black Lens to learn more about the realities of sex trafficking in rural America.”

UNCHAINED empowers high schools, universities, community organizations and businesses to produce a fashion show that tells the story of a human trafficking survivor through music, narration and garments designed by Season 5 Project Runway designer Korto Momolu.

The goal of the fashion show is to increase awareness of human trafficking both locally and globally. It also seeks to provide models, volunteers and attendees with the necessary education, training and tools to identify and report the crime.
