JACKSONVILLE, Florida, July 16th, 2021 — Rethreaded, a Jacksonville-founded nonprofit is celebrating 10 years of providing employment for local survivors of human trafficking.
To celebrate this milestone, Rethreaded is hosting a 10-year birthday party on July 31, 2021 from 6pm-9pm at their 820 Barnett St. location. This celebration will be the final event at their home of 10 years before they move to their recently purchased 36,000sq Delores Barr Weaver Campus of Hope.
The event is free and open to the public and members of the media.
“This event is more than just a birthday celebration. It celebrates 10 years of reigniting dreams,” said Kristin Keen, Founder and CEO of Rethreaded. “We are so incredibly thankful for the abundance of support we have received from the community over the last 10 years and can’t wait to see what’s to come.”
Guests can buy $25 raffle tickets for the chance to win prizes including Southwest Airline tickets, a whiskey gift basket, a “Wine on the Water” experience, and more. Food and beverage sponsors for the event include Jimmy Johns, Tabula Rasa, Chips! Cookie Co., and Baker on Wolfe Street with a photobooth experience by 20 Twenty Creative and musical entertainment by local duo, Tom and Natalie.
Kristin Keen adds, “We want this to be our biggest and best event to date. We have come a long way in 10 years and wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of the community. This event is our way to say thank you and get everyone excited about the future of Rethreaded”.

Without a stable job, 85% of survivors of human trafficking will likely be trafficked again. Rethreaded was founded 10 years ago by Kristin Keen to provide employment to local survivors and help them rebuild their lives and remove the barrier of employment.
Over the last decade, Rethreaded’s mission has been to renew hope, reignite dreams and release potential for human trafficking survivors locally and globally through business. Rethreaded has employed 74 survivors, contributed to the support of over 4,000 women globally, and collaborated with over 200 companies.
