Sweatshops and Social Justice: Nike in Indonesia Talk

The Educating for Justice (EFJ) presentation Sweatshops and Social Justice: Nike in Indonesia will be offered at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24, in the Geneva Room. In this two-hour interactive multi-media presentation, including slide shows, role-playing and video footage, Educating for Justice directors Leslie Kretzu and Jim Keady will discuss Nike's labor and environmental practices in Indonesia.

The presentation details the month Leslie and Jim spent in an Indonesian factory workers' slum living on $1.25 a day, a typical wage paid to Nike's subcontracted workers. Along with personal accounts, the presentation includes the latest information on Nike's labor and environmental practices that EFJ researched in Indonesia in 2001 and 2002.
