On November 24th 112 garment workers were killed in a fire at the Tazreen Garment factory in Bangladesh. Despite initial denials from Walmart officials, surviving workers and records showed thatclothes were being produced at the factory for Walmart at the time of the fire.
On Thursday, April 11th at 5:30pm at the Friendship Heights Metro Station (5337 Wisconsin Ave NW), join Bangladeshi garment workers, Walmart workers, community members, and religious leaders as we call on Walmart and the Gap to pay reparations to the families of the victims and sign on to a program that will help make sure fires like the one at Tazreen don't happen again. Click here to RSVP.
Walmart, the Gap, and other retailers need to take responsibility for improving fire safety in Bangladesh. Shortly after the fire it became clear that Walmart had taken the lead in blocking fire safety improvements. We need to hold Walmart and the Gap accountable before more workers are killed!
Visit the Corporate Action Network, International Labor Rights Forum, United Students Against Sweatshops, and Sum of Us to learn more. And join us on April 11th!
Mae Ngai's extensively researched book illustrates how immigration restriction created the "illegal alien" and shaped the politics of multiculturalism and national identity in our time. Ngai draws historical profiles of the Filipinos, Mexicans, Japanese and Chinese who came here as workers without documentation, alien citizens, colonial subjects and imported contract workers and yields a major reconsideration of 20th century immigration.

What's an RG Speakeasy? Did you know that the federal government used to be entirely funded by a liquor tax? Which means that prohibition resulted in the first income tax? This calls for an evening get together with old school cocktails (non alcoholic options too!) with DC RG friends. Come for the workshop, come for the social hour, or come for both! Also! RG staff organizer on the campaign, Isaac Lev, will be coming out from Oakland, CA to join the workshop. He'd love to meet RG folks in DC, and will be catching us all up on the tax justice campaign.
7 PM - Workshop
8 PM- Cocktail Hour
