Sign up for the Justice for Jeyarse Vigil!

It has been three months since the brutal murder of Jeyasre Kathiravel, an Indian Dalit woman who was a garment worker and union member organizing against gender-based violence and harassment at a major Indian garment manufacturer which has business with many major U.S. and European fashion brands. As reported in the Guardian, Jeyasre faced months of sexual harassment by her supervisor before he murdered her in January. Since her death, twenty-five other women garment workers at the same factory have since come forward publicly describing a culture of gender-based violence & harassment at the particular unit where Jeyasre worked, Natchi Apparels.

Global Labor Justice is hosting a Justice for Jeyarse Global Vigil on April 21st at 10 AM ET/ 7 AM PT. Join us to show solidarity with Jeyarse’s story and hold fast-fashion corporations accountable.

The Coalition of Labor Union Women is co-sponsor of the vigil with the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA) and major labor organizations. We look forward to you joining gender justice and labor rights organizations from around the world honoring Jeyasre’s life and standing in solidarity with her struggle to end gender-based violence and harassment!

In Solidarity,
The CLUW Team
