City Council Votes for a Sweatfree Ashland!

On December 16th, twenty-four days after our screening of Made in L.A. in Ashland, Oregon, the City Council passed "a resolution for a sweatshop free procurement policy". The Rogue IMC reports: "City of Ashland staff have six months to come up with the policies and procedures to insure a ‘no sweatshop procurement policy' and bring it back to City Council. The city currently spends $80,000 a year for uniform and garment purchases according to City Administrator Martha Bennett." We congratulate our partners at Souther Oregon Jobs with Justice, Ashland Sweatfree Campaign and all the peopoe who made this possible. And, of course: Congratulations Ashland!!!
