Fashion Fighting Sex Trafficking
Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, MY SISTER is fighting sex trafficking and supporting positive futures for those rescued. The mission: "To create a world where all girls and women are employed to live free from a life of inequality and sex trafficking". For every purchase, they donate 6+% to their non-profit partners working to end modern day slavery. MY SISTER takes it a step further and offers opportunity to women survivors by helping them start their professional career as an intern or supporting the makers like jewelry artisans in Nepal. In order for these women to thrive, they must have the necessary tools to do so - education and jobs are among the most important! Through awareness, opportunity & care, MY SISTER is making a huge impact for the millions of children and women who are trafficked around the world.

MY SISTER's internships are helping women get back on their feet. After being rescued from sex trafficking, the women have a rather difficult time finding jobs because of the stigmas associated with their former life, as well as the lack of education & business skills. MY SISTER has opened a space for them to become empowered and successful in their future endeavors. It truly warms my heart when fashion becomes so much more than a garment - it's a job, a community and a new life. In addition to offering internships, MY SISTER supports non-profits who work to provide jobs for women living in poverty. Since most women and children trafficked overseas come from poor areas, these non-profits are aiming to create sustainable livelihoods through job opportunities in order to lessen their vulnerability.
We can help create change in the easiest way possible - by being a conscious consumer! Fashion is a great way to promote equality and fight for freedom. Since it is very much visual, wearing a tee can really get the conversation going. Make a statement and stand up against sex trafficking with the Stop Traffic Tank. This flattering soft grey tank is hand printed in the US on quality fabric. Let fashion speak for you when you're out with your friends, at the gym or running errands. See what the other tees are saying below... Guys can get in on it, too!
Now go make a statement and help end trafficking for good! We are all in this together. #mysisterlivesfree
