On Sunday, March 25, 2018, the Foundations for Freedom, Inc., hosted its annual “FashionWalk” fundraiser, at Leader Luxury, 6310 N. 43rd Street.

The FashionWalk brought together youth, community leaders, and local fashion designers to raise awareness of the seriousness of the problem of human trafficking in our communities through the glamour of a fashion show.
