A Conference to Promote Justice in Factories and Fields
Organized by SweatFree Communities and the Alliance for Fair Food
Columbia Law School, New York City | April 27-29, 2007

Building off the success of SweatFree Communities' past three annual conferences and the growing power of the Alliance for Fair Food, SweatFree Communities and the Alliance for Fair Food have teamed up to hold a joint conference to advance worker justice in factories and fields. The conference will provide information and skills to support communities, groups, and individuals in creating more socially responsible economic models that ensure the human rights of workers and respect the environment. Through strategies such as worker organizing, selective government procurement, corporate pressure, consumer education, and solidarity relationships, it is possible to contribute toward a more just economy at local and national levels, impacting not only workers in this country but also communities and workers around the world. We are currently seeking workshop proposals (due Feb 15) and conference sponsors (due April 10). All details online at http://www.sweatfree.org/conference
