"The BRANDED Collective works with survivors of human trafficking from Nashville-based non-profit End Slavery Tennessee. BRANDED is an economic empowerment jobs program where the women design and handcraft the jewelry collection. Many victims of human trafficking are BRANDED; their captors physically mark them with a number or symbol. The process is often violent: a forced tattoo, a burn or knife cut. The BRANDED Collective stands against this brutal practice. Each BRANDED item is stamped with an initial and a number. The initial belongs to the survivor who made your cuff."
"Our mission is to empower girls and women escaping human trafficking to embrace their true identity and worth. By providing meaningful employment through International Sanctuary's social enterprise, Purpose Jewelry, girls are able to support themselves and obtain job training and experience."
