The Sovereignty bracelet is Batey Girls vision to place a wearable symbolic reminder throughout the world while also taking action and raising money for the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, 10% of sales will be donated to NIWRC. Every time someone wears the bracelet, they are standing in solidarity with the Native community and saying to our women, “You are not invisible. I see you. YOU MATTER.”
Batey Girls was established by the nonprofit organization; Batey Rehab Project, to provide economic opportunities for women and girls at risk of sex trafficking and domestic violence in the Dominican Republic. Our program was inspired by the true story of a nonprofit founder who witnessed parents selling their teenage daughters for sex. This program was created by the women and girls of Batey Milton providing an opportunity to begin new lives, and break free from the cycle of poverty. We have created a jewelry brand that you can be proud to wear, knowing that you are part of our mission to empower women and girls both internationally and here in the USA.
