***DUE TO COVID, WE ARE RESCHEDULING AND WILL POST A NEW DATE SOON! Our tentative new date is Wednesday, November 18, 2020! We will confirm as soon as possible!
You are invited to Crowned Free's Fashion Show on Friday, April 24, 2020, at New Vintage Place in downtown Grand Rapids! This event will highlight the company’s latest fashions to help raise funds and awareness for Human Trafficking. A portion of all ticket sales will go to help support the Pillow and Candle Programs that run through Crowned Free's partnership with Wedgwood Christian Services. In these programs local survivors are taught the trade of sewing and candle making.
This event will feature Crowned Free’s 2020 Spring Designs. The show will also weave in important information on the Human Trafficking industry and share how Crowned Free continues to support and empower organizations that work with survivors.
We are so thrilled to have survivor and author, Rebecca Bender, speak at our event. This incredible woman is the CEO & Founder of the Rebecca Bender Initiative, Survivor Leader, and Author of In Pursuit of Love. Rebecca thought she found her fairytale when she moved to Las Vegas with her boyfriend. But her dream became her nightmare when her boyfriend became her pimp at the age of 19. Trapped in a life of chaos, coerced into prostitution, abused and controlled by her trafficker, Rebecca was forced into sex trafficking for nearly six years. Many attempted escapes, two brandings, and several pimps later, Federal Investigators raided the home, allowing her an eventual avenue for escape.These days, Rebecca can be found either telling her story or helping others tell their own. Her trainings on this underground world are highly sought after by FBI, Homeland Security, undercover, SVU, medical professional and prosecutors. She speaks on leadership and founding non-profits, serves on the United States National Advisory Committee, Dept of Justice Human Trafficking Advisory Council, and the board of Exodus Cry.When she’s not being a boss in the boardroom, speaking on stage or trying to use a dry erase board to plan her next entrepreneurial idea, Rebecca can be found at home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest – in sweats with a messy bun and a cold foam cold brew. Her home is the prize for Rebecca, and she loves nothing more than a slow Saturday with her four amazing daughters (though slow is a rare word), one handsome husband, and their mini farm – which includes her French Bulldog Daisy. You can learn more about Rebecca here.
Free is a women’s direct selling clothing, jewelry, and accessory company whose
mission is to change the lives of those who have been rescued from Human Trafficking. We believe this event will not only spread
awareness but provide a catalyst to come together and make a
