Let’s End Trafficking Together - A Campaign for Artist Abolitionists


We need you.

We need your artistry, your images, your media, your fashion sense and your influence. If we raise our voices as one, we can start a movement:


Nomi Network creates jobs for women who are survivors and at risk of human trafficking giving them a living wage so they can support themselves and their families. This summer we are dedicating several weeks to building up a network of artists who care deeply about the issue of human trafficking and who will join our campaign to show the world what we can do when we stand together as one and embrace freedom through our art.

We believe passionately in life after human trafficking and the healing power of telling one’s story as a survivor. We also believe that artists are crucial to raising awareness about, and bringing an end to, this illicit industry. By inviting artists to share their artwork that reflects their own stories of survival, transformation, and freedom, Nomi Network is creating an online space to celebrate and honor who we are becoming.

Will you join our cause? You can join the fight through 1) purchasing a “LET’S END TRAFFICKING TOGETHER” tank top 2) sharing a photo of yourself in your tank top with Nomi’s Instagram account (http://instagram.com/nominetworknyc#) by using hashtag #togetherwithnomi so we can see the faces supporting the cause, and 3) nominating an artist who cares about trafficking to be featured on Nomi's blog and Instagram account as a Nomi Artist Abolitionist. Email Alissa@nominetwork.org with the artist's name, a link to their portfolio or website, and a short paragraph stating the artist's interest in this movement. (And, yes - you can nominate yourself!)

All proceeds from product sales are invested into Nomi’s programs and services. The proceeds from these limited edition tank tops will go towards a media team project that will capture the stories of several women participating in our India program. 

Stay tuned for more posts on important stats about human trafficking and other resources that you can use to raise awareness among your networks!
