Art driven funding and awareness for women and girls recovering from human trafficking
Turning Art Into Action
Coming Together to Create Change
For internationally acclaimed artist Layla Love, a photograph is just the beginning. Working with feminist icon Gloria Steinem, Love founded Rise of the Butterfly, a nonprofit dedicated to ending human trafficking and liberating women and girls worldwide. At the organizationâs core is the belief that art, when paired with a social purpose and given license for personal transformation, is a transcendent force to shape anyone within its reach. With Rise, Love delivers both the arguments and the means for change. RISE enlists artists, activists, and art lovers to actively participate in the liberation of her subjects and all trafficked, abused, and exploited communities worldwide, ultimately making artistsâand activistsâof us all.
