We Are Not For Sale
Our mission is to create a world
where no one is for sale.
In 2001, David Batstone discovered that his favorite bay area restaurant had been the center of a local human trafficking ring
He realized this was part of a growing international issue affecting every industry and corner of the earth. From there, Batstone wrote the book Not For Sale in 2007, and our organization was born.
Not For Sale fights modern-day slavery around the world
Using business creation, supply chain evaluation, and aftercare aid. By creating enterprise opportunities for vulnerable communities, offering social services to survivors and those at-risk to human trafficking, and evaluating the use of forced labor in mainstream supply chains, Not For Sale works to ensure that no one is for sale.
Our first rehabilitation center in Thailand grew to five additional social projects: Peru, the Netherlands, India, South Africa, and Romania. In all six projects, we work to provide safety and stability services to survivors while targeting the root causes of exploitation by providing skills training, education, and job opportunities.
To address economic vulnerability in highly enslaved communities, Not For Sale creates mass-market product opportunities to generate jobs and provide skills trainings for at-risk individuals and survivors in need of a sustainable income. VIEW MORE ON OUR SOCIAL ENTERPRISE PAGE.
We assess the role of specific brands in the global rise of forced-labor, offer resources to companies looking to improve their supply chains, and inform consumers of the social impact behind their purchases by publishing easily-accessible information. VIEW THE MORE THAN 500 BRAND RATINGS HERE.
