Solace Crisis Treatment Center’s Women’s Jewelry Collective
The Women’s Jewelry Collective, a project of Solace Crisis Treatment Center, was created to unify and empower immigrant women who are survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. Over the last 14 years, approximately 200 women have participated in this project. At any given time, a group of approximately 10 women meets at Solace to share their life stories and support each other as they make jewelry to sell at street fairs and other venues. The members collectively decide how to distribute the money raised. It might be used to help a member pay a utility bill or cover an unexpected medical emergency.
