Made for Freedom
Social Entrepreneur
Dawn Manske, founder of Made for Freedom, fights human trafficking with style. She witnessed the atrocities of human trafficking first hand during her 10 years living in China. After meeting children who were being used as slave labor and seeing a report with girls under the age of ten being sold to men she knew she had to do something to inflict change. Dawn started her social enterprise, Made for Freedom, with an idea revolving around her favorite international clothing, and the company has grown into a lifestyle brand. They have partnered with over 20 restoration centers/suppliers around the world and provided over 15,000 hours of dignified employment for survivors of trafficking and those coming out of marginalized situations. Dawn’s passion, presentation skills and research of the fashion industry and supply chains will inspire you to be more intentional about consumer habits.
