Student group No Sweat! wants to end Indiana University’s dependence on apparel produced by sweat-shop labor. Events like last October’s “Check your Tags” Awareness Day (link this to the IDS article) raise awareness about international labor abuses and highlight the direct connection between students and the workers who have produced their clothing. Group members also educate university administrators about apparel companies and advocate for a university-wide switch to fairer, more sustainable apparel. No Sweat! is an affiliate of United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS).
