Project Description

Globally, 80% of human trafficking survivors experience re-trafficking due to a lack of employment opportunities caused by factors such as: limited work experience, lack of references, and criminal records (those who were forced to engage in illegal activities).

Entrepreneurship provides a gateway for survivors to gain financial stability and independence by creating alternative income streams and employment opportunities. However, survivors can be re-victimized when powerful outlets steal ownership of the entrepreneurs' work, do not compensate, or take advantage of them by using their stories, talents and lived experience. This form of re-victimization creates a gap in the protection of survivors of human trafficking during their healing and entrepreneurial pursuits.

Supporting Human Trafficking Survivors

MiCreate addresses the economic barriers and re-victimization vulnerability through its Roadmap to Business Program by connecting survivors to entertainment legal advocates, business coaching, financial literacy knowledge and industry mentorship opportunities.
