How We Got Started

The Startup that Uses Fashion to Fight Human Trafficking

Dawn Manske came face to face with the effects of human trafficking while living in China and decided to devote her life to creating a world free from modern day slavery. She founded Made for Freedom, a social enterprise offering fashion and lifestyle products created by survivors or human trafficking. Manufacturing of these ethically-made products helps to prevent human trafficking by providing dignified employment to victims and women at risk globally. An Arch Grants award-winning organization, Made for Freedom has provided over 11,000 hours of dignified employment for at-risk women worldwide. Watch the story and see how Made for Freedom started on this episode of PBS Startup.
