Triumph after Trafficking
Zeta Tau Alpha member Emily Wilhoit founded Free The Girls at UGA last spring and has been developing the organization ever since. The website describes the organization as the following: “Free The Girls at UGA is a chapter of the national nonprofit Free the Girls, which provides jobs for survivors of sex trafficking in developing countries. They collect gently used bras, which they provide to the women in their program so they can start a small business selling bras.”
On Tuesday, September 13th, Emily and her executive board team, who help her lead the campus organization, put together a Lip Sync fundraising event at The Foundry in Athens. Fellow senior Zeta Tau Alpha and director of fundraising for Free the Girls at UGA Erica Mobley said, “My experience with Free the Girls has been incredible so far. I love being a part of an organization that gives the UGA student body a way to fight the issue of sex trafficking. I serve as the fundraising chair and it is so cool to raise money for an organization that directly impacts the lives of women rescued from sex trafficking. Our first year of having FTG on campus is off to a great start!” We love to see members of all ages investing into organizations, especially ones with a great mission such as Free the Girls. Stay updated with all things FTG at UGA on Facebook and Instagram to watch these girls continue to lead this new organization with great success.
