Open Heart Marketplace
By far our most ambitious project to date, Open Heart Marketplace's focus is to provide jobs for victims of human sex trafficking. Open Heart Marketplace provides a path for these victims to earn their way back into society with personal pride, power, and light in their heart—leaving no dream behind. Their stolen dreams are revived and reawakened with and by love.
Open Heart Marketplace will be a retail venue operated and managed by survivors offering on the job training and living wages. We see this as a major opportunity to partner with us.
Sole Sisters is a traveling art exhibit. All shoes have a story and the idea is to evoke the feeling of "walking in their shoes." The Sole Sisters have been on display worldwide, including at the United Nations.
We go to prisons, as well as to universities, to mentor both the victims, and also those who could become volunteers in our efforts to help victims re-enter society without shame, and as productive members of society.
Training & Education
Training and education is at the heart of many of our projects. As part of Open Heart Marketplace we will provide on-the-job training for victims. We also educate students at major universities about the perils of sex trafficking and sexual abuse.
"Every voice a light,
Every story a chance for change,
Together we can end sexual violence.”
