'The Label Doesn't Tell the Whole Story' Campaign Raises Awareness for Garment Worker Conditions
A 12-year-old girl from Bangladesh named Joya made this jacket to support her family.
"Made in Bangladesh by Joya who left school at the age of 12 to help support her two brothers and newly widowed mother. Her father was killed when a fire ripped through the cotton factory where he worked. She now works in the building across the street from the burned down factory, a constant reminder of the risk she takes every day. This label doesn't tell the whole story."
April 24 is Fashion Revolution Day, as well as the second anniversary of the day when more than 1,000 garment workers were killed in the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The Canadian Fair Trade Network encourages Twitter users to participate in the annual event where people from around the world turn their clothing inside out to display the label, take a selfie and ask #whomademyclothes via Twitter.
