is a multimedia news website covering the stories of people fighting for fundamental human and labor rights against the goliath global clothing industry. BehindTheLabel.org is an initiative of UNITE HERE to share stories of workers around the world who make our clothes, to educate the public of international campaigns where workers are struggling to correct injustices in their workplace, and to engage consumers and activists to take part in solidarity actions with garment workers against the multinational corporations behind the labels.
BehindTheLabel.org represents the efforts of a global alliance of clothing workers, religious leaders, and students standing up to demand human rights for sweatshop workers. From workers demanding respect and dignity in the Dominican Republic or Thailand, to students protesting on their behalf at university campuses, to religious leaders speaking out against labor exploitation in their congregations, BehindTheLabel.org will tell the stories of the fight to end sweatshops around the world. Read stories, watch video, and flip through photos of clothing workers and the people who care about the people who manufacture their clothes to make a difference. Follow breaking news stories as they happen.We encourage you to tour our site, and to visit regularly for up-to-date news and resources about the international sweatshop struggle. Most importantly, be an active participant for change by joining BehindTheLabel.org and take part in international solidarity campaigns: together we can make a difference!
