Sign this Online Petition for the Sweat-Free Stanford Campaign
As students, we have an unusual amount of leverage against the university. Colleges and universities are supposed to serve the interests of its students. But, if students don’t stand up and make their voices heard, these institutions can go astray, perhaps even to the point where they will implicitly condone the manufacture of their clothing in sweatshops by turning the other cheek. As indicated by recent history, the efforts of thousands of college students have helped thousands of workers around the world earn a living wage. It is our duty, as Stanford students, to do the same—to put our university on the right track by ensuring that the workers who make our clothing are treated with dignity and respect.
NOW, more than ever, our ACTIONS speak louder than our words. We must
remind Stanford that HUMAN RIGHTS precede brand labels and profit.
