Hello everyone,

This January 1st through 14th I was invited to attend a two week conference in the Dominican Republic (DR), with the effort to start up a United Students Against Sweatshops ( USAS) chapter at Western Oregon University (WOU) campus. By bringing this to my campus, we an can bring awareness of the maltreatment and unlivable wages workers around the world face. Yet, in the DR there is a worker owned and led factory that makes university attire. USAS chapters around the country have endoresed this factory to make their attire. USAS has campaigns to keep big corporations on their toes, and endorsing petions where they have to pay their workers living wages. Thus, in this trip I will be learning from workshops on tactics to push for campaings on the WOU campus.

For those who know me, the passion I have for  community organizing, this trip could help me with these skills and see what it is to live and change harsh realities. By donating anything, I will have a life changing opportunity. Thank you.

Much love

Rocio
