USAS National Winter Conference 2006

Gopal, Lynn, and satya did a 1.5 hour "Intro to Non-violent Direct Action" training for United Students Against Sweatshops at their National Winter Conference 2006 at the Ramada Hotel in Downtown San Francisco. Over 100 participants went through the training before all the attendees of the conference rallied at the University of California President’s Office in Oakland to demand that the UC system adopt the Designated Suppliers Proposal, that apparel made for the US system be made in factories which support workers’ rights and have representative unions.
