Made in L.A. follows three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles sweatshops as they embark on a three-year journey to win basic labor protections from Forever 21. The Emmy-award winning documentary reveals the impact of the struggle on each woman’s life as they are gradually transformed by the experience. “Compelling, humorous, deeply human, Made in L.A. is a story about immigration, the power of unity and the courage it takes to find your voice.”
In addition to this narrative, the film explores the history of Asian American workers in U.S. garment factories and how those experiences have influenced the leaders of Asian Americans Advancing Justice (formerly Asian Pacific American Legal Center) and the Garment Worker Center to help guide the current workers in their struggle for justice.
April 24th is the two-year anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh.
Presented by Bryn Mawr’s chapter of United Students Against Sweatshops.
