• Behind the Swoosh

Sweatshops and Social Justice, Featuring Jim Keady

Jim Keady, a nationally renowned educator and speaker in the area of social justice, will present "Behind the Swoosh: Sweatshops and Social Justice."  Keady, a former soccer coach with the St. John's University Red Storm, the NCAA Division One National Champions, stood up against Nike and their sweatshops and lost his job for doing so. "I was given an ultimatum," Keady recounted, "'Wear Nike and drop this issue, or resign."  Keady resigned as a matter of principle and has since made ending sweatshop labor his life mission.
Co-sponsored by SOULS, ONSP, and Diversity Services.
