Looking Back At One Spark Success, And Looking Ahead With Rethreaded


Among the big winners at last year’s inaugural One Spark festival was anti-human trafficking advocacy group Rethreaded, and success has kept the group busy.

Rethreaded helps rehabilitate victims of prostitution and human trafficking by training them to make and sell products out of up-cycled T-shirts.

Kristin Keen, Rethreaded's director, was the top vote getter at the 2013 One Spark festival.

Keen sat down with Melissa Ross for a look back and a discussion of what the group is up to during this year's festival.
