“Tejid@s Junt@s / Stitched Together: an Alta Gracia Documentary” (Will Delphia 2012) is an important and highly anticipated film nearing release. Alta Gracia is a unique factory in the Dominican Republic where workers participate in a strong and independent Union, receive a living wage of more than three times the local minimum wage, and are afforded dignity and respect on the job. These workers cut and sew fabric into Tee Shirts, Hoodies, and other apparel destined for Univeristy and College bookstores bearing school names and logos.
Alta Gracia is a fair alternative to the all too-common unsafe working conditions, poverty wages, and strict, repressive work environments at other factories. Come to this screening and learn how you can be part of the success!
