"Not In Our Name" (N.I.O.N.) Bracelets
The workers at the Haiti Creates factory (Cite Soleil Art Center) are making these bracelets out of recycled plastic bottles and thread. The bracelets are part of a campaign in the U.S. to oppose the separation of children and families at the U.S. borders. The campaign is called, "Not In Our Name," or N.I.O.N. for short. Half of the proceeds from bracelet sales go to the workers in Haiti who are proud to be a part of this effort to stand in solidarity with immigrant children and families. The other half will support organizations that are doing the work of monitoring human rights at detention centers and trying to reunite families who have been separated.
Note: These bracelets come in 3 sizes and they are removable and adjustable.
