Survivors Face Countless Barriers When Exiting Human Trafficking:

  • Finding a job can be incredibly difficult with a history of being trafficked. 
  • Without a stable job to support themselves, 80% of women who have been trafficked will be trafficked again. 
  • There is often deep trauma and access to mental health resources can be expensive. 
  • Without a community of support, many women struggle to navigate the system and feel trapped.

About Rethreaded

Rethreaded started with a simple idea and a strong passion from its founder, Kristin Keen in Jacksonville, FL. She began by forming relationships with women on the street and making prison visits and realized that the greatest need was for a safe, supportive work environment where the women could earn money while learning a skill and experiencing continued healing through community. 

We renew hope, reignite dreams and release potential for survivors of human trafficking locally and globally through business.

How to Help

It will take everyone in our community committed and working together to be part of the solution in ending human trafficking and restoring freedom to survivors. Survivors have done the work to end their trauma, we need to do our part to ensure their success. We challenge every person and business in Jacksonville to take the pledge to become trained on how to spot and report suspected human trafficking safely and effectively. The resources and information in this section will help you achieve this goal. If you have any questions or need any assistance, please contact info@rethreaded.com.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      What is the "sex trade?"

      Rethreaded defines the "sex trade" as human trafficking, prostitution, strip clubs, pornography and other forms of sexual exploitation.

      What is “human trafficking”?

      Human trafficking is the use of force, fraud, or coercion to perform a sexual act for profit.   Or to cause a minor to perform a sex act for profit. Although slavery is commonly thought to be a thing of the past, human traffickers generate hundreds of billions of dollars in profits by trapping millions of people in horrific situations around the world, including here in the U.S. Traffickers use violence, threats, deception, debt bondage, and other manipulative tactics to force people to engage in commercial sex or to provide labor or services against their will. While more research is needed on the scope of human trafficking, there is no official estimate of the total number of human trafficking victims in the U.S. Polaris estimates that the total number of victims nationally reaches into the hundreds of thousands when estimates of both adults and minors and sex trafficking and labor trafficking are aggregated.
