Description

Please join the Freedom Fund in London on June 20 2019 for Downward Pressures: Reforming the Apparel Sector by Tackling Purchasing Practices

The downward pressure on prices combined with a sharp focus on speed to market in the apparel sector carry significant human rights risks. Where these risks are not properly addressed, they help no one. Not the worker. Not the manufacturer. Not the brand. How do we reform the sector to move away from a race to the bottom?

Join us for the release of new cutting edge research from Human Rights Watch on this subject followed by a discussion with leading experts in the field to identify opportunities to make fashion a force for good.
