The Student & Labor Action Movement is a student-led organization dedicated to building student and worker power on campus and around the world. We are committed to human rights and believe in taking direct action to advance social justice.
We are currently working on two major campaigns, a campaign to End Deathtraps and a campaign to reduce student debt at NYU.
The End Deathtraps campaign is a United Students Against Sweatshops campaign run by SLAM’s labor committee. Our goal is to create safer working conditions in garment factories in Bangladesh by forcing the brands that produce NYU apparel to sign onto the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh.
The Student Debt campaign is run by SLAM’s student debt committee and is dedicated to increasing the financial aid available to NYU students and to making financial aid at NYU its #1 priority.
SLAM is Local #44 of United Students Against Sweatshops.
