Anthropology major, Mackenzie Morgan, and USAS battle sweatshop purchases

Anthropology major Mackenzie Morgan and her colleagues worked tirelessly to get AppState to negotiate with Alta Gracia to bring a new line of apparel to the University. Alta Gracia is a Dominican Republic company known for offering its employees a safe, healthy workplace and a living wage. Dr. Gregory Reck served as a key advisor to these amazing students. The members of the University's chapter of United Students Against Sweatshops are committed, energized, passionate and know how to organize. In the past three years they have succeeded in getting the University to affiliate with the Workers' Rights Consortium, the only independent monitoring organization of university apparel sweatshops, educated university administrators and athletic directors.
