Sponsored by the Pratt Department of Humanities and Media Studies; Pratt Graduate Program in Media Studies; Pratt Global South Center; and the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.

This panel on fashion labor activism brings into conversation key individuals on the front lines of the fight for safer and more just working conditions for some of the most vulnerable workers in the global fashion industry. Panelists include Marissa Nuncio, Director of the Garment Worker Center in Los Angeles, California; Sara Ziff, founder and Executive Director of Model Alliance based in New York City; and Chaumtoli Huq, CUNY law professor and advocate for Bangladeshi garment workers.  Pratt Professor Minh-Ha T. Pham will moderate the discussion. Topics covered include current organizing efforts within the US garment industry, the Bangladesh garment industry, and the New York and European modeling industries as well as cross-racial, cross-labor, and international campaigns and strategies in which a wide range of fashion workers are making common cause with one another. The event is free and open to the public.
