UK students were given an assignment to create an innovative design made of completely recycled materials. During the unit they learned about slavery throughout U.S. history and slavery today, with a focus on the fashion industry. They researched different organizations, which are tying to abolish slavery today. Finally, they created their own t-shirts to represent their cause. Money raised from the Trashion show was donated to STOP THE TRAFFIK.
