September 19, 2008: A slow day for developments in the cases we’re following is a good day to soapbox for The Emancipation Network. TEN is an international organization that fights slavery with empowerment, “slavery-proofing” survivors and high risk communities by giving them economic alternatives and education and using the Made By Survivors products to help build the abolition movement in the United States.
TEN sells beautiful handicrafts made by survivors at 18 shelters around the world, and offers business development to help survivors and shelters build sustainable enterprises. One hundred percent of profits from the sale of TEN products go back to anti-slavery efforts.
TEN offers you a way to become involved in fighting human trafficking by helping survivors and educating your community about this human rights crisis. We encourage you to give their site and products a serious look the next time you’re shopping for gifts – especially for someone who cares about human rights!
