This year marks the fifth anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse.
On 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza collapse became the fourth largest industrial disaster in history. There were five garment factories in Rana Plaza manufacturing clothes for big name fashion brands. The victims were mostly young women.
Let us remember the more than 1,130 garment workers who perished in this tragedy, the thousands who were injured and all those whose friends and families were affected.
This is the day Fashion Revolution was born. Although much progress has been made in Bangladesh since Rana Plaza, still millions of the people who make our clothes face poverty level pay, exploitation, danger and abuse in the workplace.
Let’s keep using our voice to change that!
Let’s show the industry we care about the people who make our clothes. Ask brands #whomademyclothes
