Honorable MENtions: Fighting Injustice With A Suit
Her Majesty’s Secret Service agent codenamed 007 fights terrorists, narcissistic lunatics, and femme fatales, all while looking great in a two-button Tom Ford suit. During the day, the ever-so brooding billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne prefers a two-button Giorgio Armani suit while at night, changes into an armored bat suit. For CEO Andrew Park, however, fighting the injustices of human and sex trafficking requires a whole new different suit, a custom-tailored Urbane + Gallant Suit.

Combining comic book art and the story of poverty and human trafficking, “Home of the Brave” is an original graphic novel by Spencer Toyama and illustrator Jon Lewis. Their narrative will invite people to discuss the issues about trafficking in America. It’s an interesting Kickstarter campaign that requires your help to get the graphic novel published!

One of the great things about being at Freedom and Fashion is that we get to work with so many great organizations striving to give a voice to the voiceless. The people behind these organizations continue to inspire us with their dedication to making a positive change in this world, no matter the obstacles. Today we are going to bring to the spotlight three of our passionate community partners!
Just Bee Films is a production company that focuses on sharing real-life stories with the hope of raising social awareness. A project they have in development right now is “Sold,” a story about two British sisters fighting to free one another from enslavement in abusive marriages.
Not For Sale fights human trafficking and modern-day slavery around the world by creating tools to incubate and grow social enterprises to benefit enslaved and vulnerable communities. With a presence in six countries across the globe, Not For Sale Social Ventures are at the forefront of creating innovative, replicable, and sustainable solutions to fight modern-day slavery. From providing basic needs to life skills training to survivors, they empower marginalized families to take hold of their lives again.
International Sanctuary, or “iSanctuary,” focuses on reintegrating survivors of human trafficking to society, with professional opportunities and mentorship. iSanctuary sells jewelry and stationery handmade and packaged by survivors in India. They are then inventoried, processed, and shipped by survivors here in the United States. All are paid fair wages (100% above fair trade wages in India!). What more, iSanctuary has developed the POST curriculum (Professional Opportunities for Survivors of Trafficking) as a tool for reintegration. This program provides professional training, computer skills, and more that lead to self sufficiency.
I love organizations that are actually doing something to make a difference, whether it be providing leadership training, rescue shelters, or simply getting the word out about human trafficking.
