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, 85% 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.

Here’s How You Can Make a Difference

When you support Rethreaded, you help remove the barriers for survivors of human trafficking as they rebuild their lives.

Each purchase from Rethreaded directly affects the lives of survivors and helps them gain skills, get job training, get access to counseling, and put the pieces of their lives back together. 

In addition to the handmade products made right here in Jacksonville, FL, we also partner with similar organizations in other locations to provide survivor-made items, which currently helps over 4,000 women worldwide.

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.

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.

Community Resources compiled by Rethreaded survivor employees, this list of resources comes highly recommended by our staff who have experienced continued healing through community.https://www.rethreaded.com/pages/community-resources
