Refugee Artisan Initiative

Refugee Artisan Initiative is a non-profit 501c3 organization with the mission to transform the lives of refugee and immigrant women by providing sustainable work in small-batch manufacturing. RAI welcomes refugee and immigrant women to the US by providing a supportive community and a chance to be an economic contributor. We create jobs for the BIPOC community, offer
living wages, working conditions suited to women, provide job skills, literacy training and market access through our marketplace, and support Artisans to launch microbusinesses with their own products and clients. Additionally, RAI operates on a sustainable model; our products contribute to a local circular economy. We are Seattle Made & Zero Waste.
