Daily Cougar puts sweatshops on the front page again!

The Daily Cougar published the lead front page article about sweatshops and our goal for the University to sign on to the Worker’s Rights Consortium and the Designated Suppliers Program. You can read it here.

Plus they published a staff editorial in support of our campaign goals. They titled their editorial “UH should sell clothes with a conscience.” Read the article here.

Coincidentally these articles were published the same day as the United Students Against Sweatshops national day of action.  In support of that we delivered an oversize invitation to president Renu Khator to come to the event we’re sponsoring on February 27. It’s a  speech by former sweatshop worker Chie Abad. See the events page for more details.
