HUMAN THREAD PRESENTATION AT ST. AMBROSE
Attacking Trafficking and St. Ambrose University Campus Ministry sponsored a discussion by Christopher Cox, Campaign Manager for The Human Thread, on Thursday, March 2 in the Rogalski Ballroom at St. Ambrose University. The discussion focused on building an understanding of the effects of globalization on the clothing industry and facilitate the understanding of people’s relationship with clothes.

This is accomplished by fostering awareness, promoting solidarity between consumers and the individuals who manufacture the clothes, in order to create a just economy and sustainable communities.
