Here is the ordinance we want the City of Houston City Council to pass:  sweat free ordinance

Sweatfree Communities drafted this model ordinance. They are an organization that assists sweatshop workers globally in their struggles to improve working conditions and form strong, independent unions.

The most important part of the sweat free ordinance is the actual implementation. Here are the implementation guidelines provided by Sweat Free Communities.

Sweatfree Communities and their allies recently also released a policy paper on Federal sweatfeee purchasing. Check it out here: principlesforfedproc

An extensive amount of policy resources for government officials are available at Sweatfree Communities website here.
