Protect with Purpose


Protect with Purpose is an innovative community manufacturing project collaborating with DC textile workers of color to produce needed cloth masks for residents, organizations, and institutions serving our community. The effort is being led by the DC Fashion Foundation (DCFF) and the House of Clyopatra Foundation, in partnership with CNHED. Masks produced adheres to highest quality standards, developed based on CDC recommendations for face coverings, and offers creative designs, while helping protect and create good jobs for our community.

Through this initiative, we are able to not only provide essential face coverings to vulnerable communities and re-employ DC residents, but we are also able to showcase a new equitable economic development model.
