Take Action Now
Since 2006, more than 1800 garment workers have died in preventable fires and building collapses while sewing clothing for companies like Gap, H&M, and Walmart. Two years after 29 workers died in a fire at a Gap supplier in Bangladesh, Gap is still refusing to pay for reforms and join with other companies in a binding fire safety agreement that includes worker representation. Until there is real change, any day there could be another factory fire or building collapse with workers locked inside.
