University of Colorado Demands Justice at Rising Sun

After months of campaigning by United Students Against Sweatshops activists at the University of Colorado, their director of licensing sent a letter to Steve and Barry's University Sportswear (4004, Inc.) demanding action on the Rising Sun case.

Update from Claudia (regional organizer for USAS):

It seems as though the reason they sent the letter is because of the fact that we are holding a public hearing tomorrow to hold them accountable. Our focus will be on following up to make sure Steve and Barry's takes responsibility and repays/rehires workers but moreover to continue to pressure CU to implement a sustainable solution that will prevent such cases in the first place, namely the DSP. This is a good step in the direction of approaching licensees.
