Mission Statement

Rethreaded loves people affected by the sex trade by fostering relationship and life-giving community. Our vision is to unravel the effects of the sex trade by fighting business with business on a global and local level. Rethreaded seeks to unravel the effects of the sex trade, whether it takes the form of human trafficking, prostitution, pornography or strip clubs. This multibillion dollar industry is founded on the exploitation of mostly women and children. As an organization we want to provide safe, viable, and dignity-giving work to survivors of the sex trade.

Description

Rethreaded celebrated the graduation of its first employee from its four-month holistic training program on March 1, 2013. Beginning in November 2012, an all-volunteer staffed training program began to provide healing in the form of daily devotionals, journaling, and collage, and instruction in color theory, nutrition, budgeting, and of course, sewing.

Our employees are artisan seamstresses, meaning they take ownership of the products by making design and color choices during production. Using donated t-shirts as the raw material, the possibilities present a creative challenge and an opportunity to express individuality. Rethreaded believes that art and creativity can heal the brain by strengthening existing connections and sparking new neural pathways.
