BGSU: The One Grey Outfit Project
One Grey Outfit (BGSU)
Each year, a group of BGSU students pledge to wear the same grey outfit for thirty days to represent the loss of choice imposed on the victims of sex trafficking in our local community and beyond. This tradition started within the BGSU Panhellenic Community as “The One Grey Dress Project,” but has since grown to include campus community members of all genders. During this month, the participants also fundraise for Recovering Individuals from Sexual Exploitation (RISE), a program founded in Toledo, Ohio that offers case management to at-risk individuals and survivors of sex trafficking in the Toledo area, including Wood County. For more information, visit the Crowdrise page at the link above.
