This exhibition endeavours to tell the living stories of garment workers and their leadership to honour their labour, lives, resistance, joys, and triumphs, and to pass on their stories of collective organizing, community led action and mutual aid practices to the next generation of future workers. Garment workers are empowered agents who lead systemic change to better their lives and labour throughout the global garment industry through collective organizing, direct action, community building, and sweatshop abolition. These collective acts of resistance by the rising majority reverberate like a mighty thunder expanding and enduring across time and space, embodying the revolutionary spirit of garment workers past, present and future. Can you hear the resounding roar of tens of millions of garment workers echoing across oceans, land, geographies, languages, and time, driven by revolutionary love and conviction, with fists raised high demanding a just recovery and deserving futures, “¡Adelante Siempre!” Forward! Forever!
