From Penn State University to Villanova, Bryn Mawr, and Ursinus College, hundreds of students came out to hear from former Nike factory worker, Noi Supalai.
At Penn State, Noi said, “’I would like everyone to support each other in campaigning for Nike to be monitored,’… ‘Nike says it has humanity, that it has morality; this is not true. Nike has to be monitored, because otherwise, it will take advantage of workers who are producing for them.'”
Students at Villanova considered Nike’s position on independent monitoring against the Catholic social teaching – questioning the brands ethics if it refuses to allow workers access to an important resource like the Worker Rights Consortium. The students plan to take their concerns to University President, Father Peter.
