U.S. House of Representatives votes to take action against forced labor in cotton supply chains
The Clean Clothes Campaign has shared that the U.S. House of Representatives has voted to take action against the import of goods from the Uyghur region, where forced labor is "ubiquitous" and political forces make factory inspections near impossible; the Uyghur region is responsible for as much as 20% of the world's cotton. A release on the action says, "The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (H. R. 6210) establishes the legal presumption that any product arriving at US ports that was manufactured in the Uyghur Region, or contains inputs from the region, was made using forced labor." The bill will still need to pass in the U.S. Senate. {Fashionista Inbox}
