I’m participating at several events as part of Chicago’s Fashion Revolution week. Fashion Revolution was inspired by the Rana Plaza factory disaster, which I wrote about yesterday.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26
I’ll be on NPR affiliate WBEZ’s program WorldView with Jerome McDonnell. Wait, WBEZ? Isn’t that the station that produces This American Life? If I see Ira Glass, he’s totally getting a high-five.
Explore alternatives! Fashion Show and Panel with Keynote Speaker Kelsey Timmerman at Columbia College. Chicago Fair Trade and Columbia are hosting an ethical fashion show, interactive displays, and a panel. I’ll give a quick keynote before the panel begins. Located at 618 S. Michigan . The fashion show will take place in the 2nd floor lobby, with the screening in the Stage 2 theater, also on the second floor.
THURSDAY, APRIL 27
EVANSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY EVENT As part of Fashion Revolution Week, Chicago Fair Trade and Evanston Fair Trade have organized an event: a screening of Clothes to Die For, a documentary about the Rana Plaza tragedy, followed by a Q&A with me.
6 – 8:30 PM
Depaul University I’ll be delivering a keynote directly after we watch Clothes to Die For. I just watched this for the first time today and I’m leveled. Scott Nova of the Workers’ Rights Consortium will also be there. I’m excited to meet Scott and learn from him.
