labour rights calendar


Please notify Campaign for Labor Rights as you develop plans to participate
in any of these events. We can help you connect with other people in your
community who are concerned about sweatshop issues.

The precise date of some of the following actions may not fit local
organizing needs. If your group needs to shift its event to some other date
in the same general time frame as a particular day of action, then that
event certainly would still count as part of the coordinated national action.
