Pacific Northwest Tour -Ashland, OR

On Saturday morning we made the longest drive of all - all the way down to Ashland, OR, our last stop in the tour. The event, held at the Southern Oregon University, was organized by Wes Brain, Chair of Southern Oregon Jobs with Justice and Barbara Scott Winkler, Chair of the Women Studies Program and an early fan of the film (check her comment about Made in L.A. in our Audience Reactions page).

The event was hoping to gather support for a sweatfree ordinance in the city of Ashland, which was expected to come to City Council on December 2 (then posponed till December 16). "The City of Ashland should ensure that its employees' uniforms aren't coming from sweatshops", stated Wes Brain at the event, "SOJwJ and SweatFree Ashland are taking a resolution to city council on Dec. 2 so the timeliness of the screening is significant."

This event was sponsored by Women's Studies Program of the Department of Social Science, Policy and Culture (SSPC) , SOU Women's Resource Center and Southern Oregon Jobs with Justice.
