We are the BraCycle team. We are made up of professionals, interns who are bright college and high school students, and volunteers -- all passionate about providing gently used bras for women experiencing homelessness in the U.S. We work tirelessly behind the scenes to collect your gently used bras, clean and sort them, and distribute them to women in NYC shelters.
Founder of BraCycle and Executive Director
Karen Jang is BraCycle's Founder and Executive Director. A recent graduate of Barnard College, she studied Biochemistry and studied at Barnard's Athena Center for Women's Leadership Studies. Karen started BraCycle because she wanted to create a platform and community where women could donate and exchange bras, addressing the reality that while many women cannot afford or access bras, lightly worn bras go to waste. She dedicates every day to growing the impact of BraCycle in the NYC community and beyond.
