ARI offers in-depth training on Iconography and the history of human branding and how its evolved into what we see today in commercial exploitation. 
We collaborate with organizations, those working to stop recidivism and work alongside community partners to create tangible solutions to combat commercial sexual exploitation, break the stigma of mental health, break stigmas of addiction and keep an open healthy dialogue on challenges in our communities to create networks to see communities thrive. In addition, we work in-depth with the tattoo industry to continue to build a community of safe spaces for survivors to experience wholeness and freedom.
