Rethreaded Toasts to Helping Trafficked Survivors Stitch their Lives Back Together

Shown (L-R) giving a toast to Rethreaded’s success is guest with patron Demeatrice Gibbons.
Held inside the industrial area’s Glass Factory event center, local nonprofit, Rethreaded hosted its 12th Annual Mukti, (meaning “freedom” in Benagali) Freedom fundraiser. Presented by the Jaguars Foundation, the event is Rethreaded’s largest fundraising event of the year in both fundraising and guest attendance.


Individuals rallied to support Rethreaded allowing them to continue removing barriers for women who have experienced human trafficking. Their Survivor Development Program provides job training as well as access to counseling and care management to help survivors in Jacksonville put the pieces of their lives back together.

The Gala began with a black carpet champagne welcome with an inspiring message of the theme for the night, “Through Our Eyes” giving patrons the opportunity to express their support through their philanthropic eyes.  Patrons participated in raffles, live and silent auctions, shopping, and opportunities to donate and support Rethreaded’s survivor program.

“We are grateful for everyone who participated in the Mukti Freedom Gala this year.” said Kristin Keen, Founder and CEO of Rethreaded.
Without a stable job, 85% of survivors of human trafficking will likely be trafficked again. Rethreaded was founded nearly 12 years ago to provide employment to local survivors, help them rebuild their lives, and remove the barrier of unemployment. Rethreaded’s mission is to harness the power of business, time, and community to create choice for 500 survivors of human trafficking by 2033. Rethreaded has employed 78 survivors, contributed to the support of over 4,000 women globally, and collaborated with over 200 companies.
