United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS)

Web       http://usas.org

The nationís largest youth-led, student labor campaign organization with affiliated locals on over 150 campuses. USAS chapters run both local and internationally-coordinated campaigns for economic justice in partnership with worker and community organizations. Since 1997, we have won significant campaigns for workers' organizing rights, fair contracts and living wage policies on campuses and in communities all across the US. USAS centers the intersection of many related struggles for social, racial, economic, and gender justice following the idea of collective liberation. We have trained tens of thousands of young activists to become skilled organizers, researchers, and campaigners in labor and social justice organizations.
