When Nia Sanchez was six-years-old her parents divorced and she had to live in a shelter with her mother. It was a difficult time and Ms. Sanchez, now Miss USA, has not forgotten those days. She joined super-model Tyson Beckford on Tuesday night to co-host the Fashion for Charity Gala, which helped raise funds and increase awareness of domestic violence and human trafficking. “One out of every four women experience domestic violence,” she said. And more than 20 million women are victims of sex trafficking.”When women are given tools they can take their life back and turn it around into something positive,” said Ms. Sanchez.

That is the reason this organization, was chosen to receive a portion of the funds from the gala.
