Global Activism: Ethical Jewelry

Brian Leber—Founder, Jewelers' Burma Relief Project; President, Leber Jewelers

Brian Leber and his wife Joanne took over the family jewelry business from his father. But they were not comfortable with the jewelry industry's history of using sources with questionable human rights practices. They started a socially conscious jewelry store and founded the Jeweler's Burma Relief Project to offer humanitarian aid to people of Burma.
