WHAT DO YOU DO?
A mission-driven company, Liberti’s collection of handcrafted jewelry and distinctive accessories is fueled by stimulating deep social impact. Look beyond our stunning designs, and you will see new beginnings for resettled refugees here in the United States.
WHY DO YOU DO IT?
Our inspired statement pieces embrace the spirit of opportunity, strength, and freedom. Through our paid refugee apprenticeship program, we pass on career-building craftsmanship skills to the powerful men and women who have escaped impossible environments abroad with hope for a better future. Every purchase made has a direct impact toward providing them with opportunity that transcends the present moment, empowering refugees to establish a new foundation through trade training that lasts a lifetime.
WHAT IMPACT ARE YOU MAKING?
Liberti is built on the ideals of the American Dream: freedom, drive, creativity, and community. By taking a stand to ensure entirely ethical production, we have created a collection that truly gives back. Liberti collaborates with artisans across America throughout every facet of our process, supporting passion-based business owners and our refugee apprentices along the way. From ideation to production, the materials we use are made by people who love their craft, all the while meaningfully contributing to our US economy.
WHAT (OR WHO) INSPIRES YOU TO MAKE THIS IMPACT?
My volunteer work with refugees here in Colorado over the past 5 years has given me the vision to launch a company to help empower the vulnerable and newly arrived immigrants here in America.
WHAT IS (OR HAS BEEN) YOUR GREATEST CHALLENGE?
Securing resources and partners here in America. Since so much manufacturing and resources moved overseas it is very hard to find solid partners that share your vision and mission for social impact.
WHAT WORDS OF ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR OTHER LEADERS WHO ARE LOOKING TO MAKE AN IMPACT?
Stay strong and committed to your vision and mission. You will work harder and spend more time being committed but it will be worth it in the long run.
