Dignity Collective is the creation of women who fundamentally believe that equality and economic justice are achievable and that change is possible.
During her time in college, founder Erin Murphy participated in human rights promotion and trafficking prevention advocacy and activism. Spending summers volunteering at a Ukrainian orphanage, Erin saw firsthand how so many young people, especially girls, would eventually be at risk for sex trafficking or labor exploitation.
in 2011, Erin served as a Fulbright Scholar teaching journalism and social studies, while researching sex and labor trafficking in Moldova (it's a small country sandwiched between Ukraine and Romania). After her grant ended, she continued to work in women's empowerment and grassroots development initiatives in Nepal, India and Czech Republic.
While working In South Asia, Erin saw how women's vocational trainings were common poverty alleviation programs, usually with varying degrees of success. She noticed that in many cases, there seemed to be no job prospects for these women upon completion training. There were whole co-ops of women who had received sewing workshops, but those co-ops were not getting enough orders to stay in business. Women were often forced to return to exploitative and dangerous work places.
She had her work cut out for her. She wanted to create a high-volume, hand-crafted, top quality product line that would provide steady enough orders to sustain these women, with an ethical fashion production model that instead of exploiting women, would provide a safe work environments and viable economic opportunities.
