Los Angeles garment workers have been facing poor and dangerous working conditions, wage theft and low pay, and employer retaliations in response to their organizing. With over 45,000 garment workers in Los Angeles, many earn wages that are below a livable wage and face sweatshop-like conditions.

Join AmnestyLA for a special film screening (and live Q&A) of the documentary film, Sewing Resilience, by filmmakers and artivists Wil Prada and Pea Nunez. The film follows the life of Santa, a mother of three, a garment worker, and leader-organizer of the labor movement to put a stop to worker exploitation in LA’s fashion and garment worker industry.

After the 14-minute film, the program will include a live panel discussion with Director Wil Prada and special guest speakers from the Garment Worker Center and more. The conversation will include discussion on this important labor rights movement and the fight to end worker exploitation.
