Join us on Monday, April 24th for a free film screening about the fashion industry called, “The True Cost”. The film is 50 minutes and afterward we’ll have plenty of time for conversation and questions. Amy French, Community Director of CREDO Conduit will speak about her experience in Bangladesh and Remake Community Organizer Sara Phillips will speak about how you can get involved to help stop garment worker deaths. Light refreshments and drinks will be provided.
April 24th is the 10th Anniversary of the collapse of Rana Plaza which housed five garment factories, killed at least 1,132 people, and injured more than 2,500. At least 29 global brands had recent or current orders with at least one of the five garment factories in the Rana Plaza building, include Benetton (Italy), Bonmarche (UK), Cato Fashions (USA), The Children’s Place (USA), El Corte Ingles (Spain), Joe Fresh (Loblaws, Canada), Kik (Germany), Mango (Spain), Matalan (UK), Primark (UK/Ireland) and Texman (Denmark).

This event is co-hosted by Remake, a global advocacy organization fighting for fair pay and climate justice in the clothing industry. The purpose of our group is to connect with like-minded individuals to disrupt the $2.5 billion dollar clothing industry. Let’s chat about what we can do to create lasting change.
