Dominican Sisters join our coalition

leave a comment »

The Dominican Sisters of Houston have joined our coalition and endorsed our campaign to get the City of Houston to pass a sweat free purchasing ordinance. They are the 91st organization to join up with our Sweat Free Coalition.

Last year (2009) the City spent almost 3 million dollars on apparel purchases and unfortunately all of them were made in sweatshops. If your organization is interested in joining our coalition, give us a call at 832.771.7263 or email us @ sweatfreehouston (at) gmail (dot) com. Thanks!
