Musicians Against Sweatshops is dedicated to eradicating sweatshops by working with musicians to ensure their merchandise is being made in fair working conditions - in either union factories or worker-owned cooperatives. MASS believes that music is one of the most powerful ways to reach people and to educate them about worker injustices around the world. By creating a demand for sweat-free clothing, we are promoting the rights of garment workers and financially maintaining union and worker-coop factories...
Who I'd like to meet:Folks who are looking to combine activism and social change. If you're a musician: start thinking about where your money is going when you buy your gear. source your apparel ethically and support garment workers around the world. and if you already source your stuff from union/worker-coop factories, let us know. we want to support the musicians who support the workers. If you're an activist: throw a benefit show, volunteer to go see shows and talk about sweatshops or start talking to your favorite bands about where their apparel is made. or contact us to learn more about sweatshop injustices and how you can help.
