Kristin Keen is a client of the Jacksonville Women’s Business Center and a woman with a big idea. Rethreaded is a faith-based nonprofit whose purpose is to help “sew a new story” for people affected by the local and international sex trade. Kristin Keen lived and worked for five years in Kolkata, India. After encountering the life-stealing effects of the area’s sex trade, Kristin help to co-found a business with Sarah Lance that could offer these women a safe haven. Today, Sari Bari is a thriving business that employs more than 75 people in Kolkata.  When Kristin returned from India three years ago to Jacksonville, she still felt called to fight the sex trade, and Rethreaded was born.
