Trade Subcommittee Hearing on the Global Challenge of Forced Labor in Supply Chains: Strengthening Enforcements and Protecting Workers
July 21st 10am ET
April 21st – 10am ET / 7:30pm IST / 2pm UTC
The global labor and gender justice movement is coming together to honor the life of Jeyasre Kathiravel, an Indian garment worker and TTCU union member who was organizing against gender based violence and harassment in her workplace, but after facing months of sexual harassment by her supervisor, was found murdered in January of this year. This vigil is a call to rise up and join in solidarity with garment workers who are demanding an end to gender based violence and harassment in the global garment supply chain.
The Corridors for Justice project is launching the first international summit to foster alliances, strategy, and dialogue across migratory corridors of the Americas. The summit will be a space for migrant worker-leaders and organizers to articulate strategies to resist corporate and state-driven forced migration and racism and labor exploitation based on migration status. All of these enormous obstacles have been exacerbated by the effects of the Covid19 pandemic. At the summit, we will lift up strategies to transform these conditions by developing collaborations among participants and with allies in academia, culture, labor movement, and civil society.
GLJ-ILRF is co-convener of the summit and core member of the corridors for justice team.
