How can one girl change the world? It all began with a heart for justice and a little black dress. In 2012, sixteen-year-old Bethany Winz decided to make a difference. To raise awareness, she determined to

- wear the same black dress every day for a year to bring attention to the lack of choices slaves have
- come up with new ways to accessorize the dress each day
- use her blog and pictures of her outfits to raise money for agencies helping those who were being trafficked

Her yearlong journey was one of hope, discipline, and sometimes disappointment. She celebrated some successes yet despaired at the depth of the problem. As she found her identity tied to the things she did, Bethany discovered that while she stood for freedom for others, she also struggled to find her own freedom in believing that she was loved just as she was. This moving book shows readers that their voices matter, they can make a difference, and sometimes the smallest gestures have lasting impact.

From the Back Cover:

One girl. One dress. One year. For freedom.

When sixteen-year-old Bethany Winz learned about the millions of men, women, and children around the world trapped in slavery, her stomach churned. How can anyone do that to another human being? she wondered. And why aren't we doing something?

This is the story of Bethany's "something."

Journey with her as she wears the same black dress every day for a year to focus attention on the lack of choices people in modern-day slavery face and raise money to help end human trafficking. As Bethany works to bring freedom to people worldwide, she'll discover how much she too needs freedom. You'll be inspired not only to change the world in your own way but also to experience the life-changing freedom of God's irrepressible love.

"Bethany is part of a brave new generation of leaders following Jesus as they engage with some of the world's most difficult issues--and most vulnerable people. I encourage you to listen to her creative and courageous voice inviting others on a journey to freedom!"--Jennifer Roemhildt Tunehag, cofounder and core team member, European Freedom Network Global Human Trafficking Task Force, World Evangelical Alliance
"Raw, witty, and unafraid, One Dress. One Year. is a primer on moving from passion to action that is courageously honest about the inevitable stops at disillusioned and disheartened along the way. This book is a must-read for any young person passionate about justice but unsure where to begin--or if their efforts will even matter."--Jim Martin, vice president of spiritual formation, International Justice Mission; author of The Just Church
