Consumer Activism and Global Pressure


…Sorry, I meant to write something about this instead of just have a link but was so excited last night about not watching the State of the Union address that I forgot…

The Harry Potter Alliance is the type of activism we could all do to improve conditions of work around the world. By creating consumer activism over production around a product that has a huge fan base, like with college students and apparel licensing agreements, it provides a entryway into fighting for change and forcing companies to listen to you. As I argue in Out of Sight, this is the type of thing we need far, far more of and it is a sign that people can make a difference. Ultimately, we need legal codes and regulatory enforcement to really ensure that goods are made in a dignified manner that does not exploit people, but it will take these sorts of social movements to make it happen.
