Message from the CEO
Sweatshops: Reviving an American Tradition
EMPOWERED GARMENT WORKER
Healthy, politically savvy garment worker, tireless in her solidarity.
Comes in various striking colors and action styles from walk-out to sit-down.
Resists the harshest conditions. Pairs up perfectly with international solidarity.
Will work 8-hour days for a fair and living wage. Part of a larger ensemble,
the Coalition for Maquila Workers' Dignity (COSDEMA). This spring, COSDEMA
helped the FMLN political party pass a strong new maquila workers' law.
Now they need our help to enforce it. Please publicize, organize and wash
with strong resurgence.

Stable communities are based on decent jobs, and ours are no exception.
At CISPES all our community building follows a rigorous process using the
finest local materials. We start by pressuring US AID to live up to its
legal responsibility, and not violate international labor rights. We then
pressure the Salvadoran government to enforce its own labor laws and stop
repressing workers. Communities on both sides of the border benefit as people
build better futures where they live. Comes in these local options: Grassroots
Democracy, Community Development, and Health Care for All. Try these styles:
rural or urban, North and South. Special sister-city offer: buy one, get

Which is more important? A bargain in your local fashion mall, or social
justice and economic democracy? This Global Citizen doesn't have to ask.
She knows it takes grassroots action to build a better world. Not afraid
to confront U.S. policy makers or transnational corporations. Supports women
who are organizing in the sweatshops of El Salvador. Looks beyond her own
backyard to find solutions. Knit together, seamless fabric. One standard
of justice fits all.
