Serendipity12th Branded Collective Brass Tiny Cuff

$ 20.00

BECOME A NUMBER TO RESTORE A NAME.

The BRANDED Collective employs survivors of human trafficking from Nashville-based non-profit End Slavery Tennessee. The women work with local artisans to design and handcraft the jewelry collection. 25% of the profits go to the rescue and restoration of survivors.

BRANDED: 
To mark with a branding iron.
Any mark of disgrace, stigma, shame.

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. When you receive your item from the BRANDED Collective, you are BRANDED. Each piece contains a unique number that represents one of the millions trapped in the nightmare of trafficking.

COLLECTIVE: 
Something done by people acting as a group.
Shared by all members of the group.
A cooperative enterprise.

We are the BRANDED Collective: buyers, survivors, entrepreneurs, artisans. Together we wear the story, share the story and change the story.
