Your support of Fashion Forward will raise critical funding and awareness of the challenges Indigenous communities face in rural Guatemala. This event directly supports the women who are at the heart of all we do, along with thousands of their family members.
Throughout the pandemic, we have trained and worked with hundreds of our partner artisans to produce 130,000 masks – and 100,000 of these have been donated to high-need communities and essential workers on the frontlines. And as part of our Masks Where They’re Needed Most campaign, for each mask purchased, we’ve donated another to high-need communities – from migrant communities in the U.S., to Indigenous families in Guatemala, and from organizations spearheading the racial justice movement, to the underhoused in the Bay Area – each mask helps make a difference.
Supporting a nonprofit focused on women’s empowerment and ethical fashion demonstrates a commitment to worker’s rights around the world, at a time where critical social issues are at a tipping point. Partnering with donors, retailers, and artisans, we are reshaping the world to be more ethical, sustainable, and just – for all of us.
