Demographic of Artisans: Survivors of Human Trafficking
Branded Collective empowers survivors of trafficking through meaningful work and economic independence.They hope each survivor will be inspired to rediscover the dreams she has lost and be motivated to go forth and pursue them.
Each Branded piece is stamped with an initial and a unique number:
- The initial belongs to the survivor who made your cuff.
- The number is your unique registration in the Collective - a group of abolitionists who stand against this brutal practice.
Ending Modern Slavery
When BRANDED started in 2012, 100 numbers were stamped on 100 cuffs. That number is now well into the 40,000s! You are invited to join the Collective. Together we can empower survivors of human trafficking to rise above the branding and the trauma they have been given. Together we can wear the story, share the story and change the story.
