Rally: Garment Workers Need Safe Factories

June 24 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Tell Levi’s: Garment workers need safe factories NOW!

FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2022 AT 12 PM

1535 Broadway, New York, NY 10036

Join Kalpona Akter, executive director of the Bangladesh Center for Worker Solidarity (BCWS) and president of IndustriALL affiliate Bangladesh Garment & Industrial Workers Federation (BGIWF), United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS), Remake, IndustriALL affiliate Workers United, and allies to demand that Levi’s join the International Accord for Health and Safety in the Textile and Garment Industry. Unlike many of its competitors, Levi’s has refused to sign onto this lifesaving program, leaving workers in its factories at risk. Join the global campaign calling on Levi’s to do the right thing and protect the workers who make its clothing.
