The Jacksonville non-profit Rethreaded is issuing a challenge for shoppers: Support survivors of human trafficking with your purchases this holiday season.

Tuesday on First Coast Connect guest host Jessica Palombo was joined by longtime friends Bishop Rudolph McKissick Jr., a black Democrat, and Lindsey Brock, a white Republican. They talked about maintaining their 35-year friendship through a contentious presidential election and its aftermath.

We also heard from Ellen Wiss and Paula Liang from the Women’s Giving Alliance.

Jekyll Island Events Manager Nancy Kring Rowan joined us by phone to talk about a month’s worth of events to celebrate the holidays.

And Rethreaded founder Kristin Keen joined us to talk about the Rethreaded Challenge, a campaign to get shoppers to buy gifts made by survivors of the sex trade.
