As a member of the Clean Clothes Campaign, Arisa supports the following statement:

The COVID-19 pandemic has painfully exposed in recent weeks the unequal power relations in the global garment supply chains, with workers paying the prize. Organisations participating in the Clean Clothes Campaign are calling on garment brands and traders as well as governments and other stakeholders to take action: Take care for the most vulnerable and often hardest-hit workers in the chain. Build towards a future in which workers have access to living wages and a social safety net.
