Come hear Wal-Mart sweatshop workers from India and Colombia, Oregon's Labor Commissioner Dan Gardner, and a Portland fire fighter speak on why Portland should rid sweatshops from city contracts and become sweatfree now.|
RALLY FOR A SWEATSHOP FREE PORTLAND
Monday, February 19th (President's Day)
In front of City Hall
(1221 SW 4th Ave, between Madison and Jefferson Streets)
Background on the campaign: The goal of the sweatfree campaign is to end taxpayer subsidies of human rights abuses. The City of Portland purchases goods from companies known to have partnered with subcontractors accused of labor rights violations. The Sweatfree Coalition is working to pass a sweatfree ordinance that upholds local and international labor laws and respects the dignity of all workers.
