CONVO: Clean Clothes
CONVO: Clean Clothes
Norton Center for the Arts – Weisiger Theatre, Danville KY

Julia Vallejos is a Nicaraguan fair trade advocate and founding member of a worker-owned sewing factory. In 1998, Hurricane Mitch forced her to leave her home and livelihood behind. Many women in her displaced refugee community were finding work in Free Trade Zones of foreign-owned textile factories known for poor labor conditions, low pay, and long hours. Seeking an alternative that does not leave profits in the hands of foreign owners, Julia joined with others to form a worker-owned sewing cooperative called The Women of Nueva Vida. Now named Masilí, they were the first worker-owned factory to receive Free Trade Zone status, giving them tax breaks and access to U.S. and European markets without changing their worker-owned model. Julia will share her perspectives on how “free trade” policies and U.S. corporate practices have affected her community and the choices we as consumers can make to support alternative
trade models like Masilí.
