Activate.LA exists to co-create change through fashion, art, entertainment, and all media channels. We are dedicated to bringing awareness, media attention, support and financial relief to the causes individuals care about including but not limited to Homelessness, Domestic Violence, Mental Health, Poverty, Education, Animal Rights, Incarcerated Individuals, and Addiction Recovery.
We have created a mentorship program between sixteen aspiring fashion designers and sixteen "individuals in need" called Sweet Labor. (Its basically a mixture of Project Runway and Intervention). Fashion Therapy (Sweet Labor) consists of two individuals building a positive meaningful relationship with one another while constructing a fashion garment. The garment provides a looking lens into lives of the mentees & their unique life experiences.
Sweet Labor spearheads a fashion campaign that features a 16 piece collection every 8 weeks for their created designs, which enables consumers to make contributions to their chosen cause through a fashion purchase.
We found that if we can capture just 1% of the fashion industry dollars annually spent, we could adequately provide funding for all the 1,630 community outreach nonprofits and charities in California.
