Optional Clothing Swap!
 
Join us for a viewing of Schmatta, from Rags to Riches to Rags, an HBO
documentary about the rise and fall of the garment industry, from the New
York garment district of the early 1900's to the globalized system that
exists today. After the film, stay for a discussion about what we can do on
a personal, local, and global level to live ethically and confront labor
abuses today.  We will also have a clothing swap - bring your old clothes
and swap them for something "new"!
 
Sponsored by the Boston Workmen's Circle and the New England Jewish Labor
