Former Nike factory worker, Noi Supalai, met with students from across the Northeast to discuss the importance of independent monitoring in light of Nike’s long history of labor rights violations. Students from Rutgers University, NYU, Northeastern, Tufts, Clark, and Emerson, all committed to support Noi’s efforts to hold Nike accountable after she discussed how WRC intervention ensured that she and her coworkers were paid after being abandoned by Nike at their factory in Thailand.

Rutgers University students highlighted that their school’s contract with Nike is expiring in June. The students are demanding their school not renew its contract with Nike unless the brand commits to facilitate WRC access at its supplier factories.
