Exploitation in fashion
Oxfam Canada is helping exploitation in fashion in Canada!
“Oxfam Canada seeks to defend the rights of garment workers overseas and in Canada. … According to Oxfam campaign coordinator Bill Hynd, “Canadian companies are profiting from abusing the rights of people in many developing countries. It is time that we consumers hold retailers and manufacturers accountable for the conditions under which their clothes are produced.” (Our Work. Oxfam Canada. N.p., 2010. Web. 31 May 2016.)
Why do we know so little about exploitation in fashion?
There are so many of us out there who know very little about how the garment industry works, nor do we have the time to access that information because it generally takes time that we all wish we had. I’m hoping the link provided through this blog can help share insight into how to help empower those, who are unfortunate enough to have been born with the socio-economic disadvantage, of not being born in North America.
Why Oxfam Canada, is helping change exploitation in fashion.
Organizations like Oxfam Canada, works very hard to educate and empower those who have the ability to make a change, to drive home the idea that the ‘average person’ and all citizens who chose to use their voice can end poverty and injustice by working together to ensure that everyone has Human Rights. I urge you to read and lean what you can about this organization and others like it. Spread the word, we can change the world together. The more we stand together, the more change will inevitably happen.
