Since 2005, more than 1,180 garment workers have died in preventable factory fires and building collapses in Bangladesh. This is unacceptable.


Students and workers have spent months demanding REI drop The North Face over their extreme human rights abuses in Bangladesh. In response, REI has refused to even meet with representative to discuss their part in these tragedies. Join us for a national day of action to let REI know, we will not be silenced.

In the wake of these disasters, students and workers have been taking action and have already been able to pressure 150 apparel brands to sign the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh - a legally-binding agreement between brands and unions.

Unfortunately, VF Corporation, parent company of North Face, has refused to sign this groundbreaking agreement. Instead, the company has teamed up with Walmart to create a fake safety program that excludes unions and isn't legally binding.

Join USAS in the nation's capital to demand that REI pull all North Face products from its shelves nationally unless VF signs the Accord. Will they drop North Face and take a stand for human rights, or continue to ignore students and consumers?
