Please join Responsible Sourcing Network on Wednesday, May 20 at 11am EDT (8am Pacific) for a free webinar focusing on the latest research and observations from the 2019 cotton harvest in Turkmenistan. The Government of Turkmenistan forced tens of thousands of its citizens to pick cotton or pay for replacement pickers last year, similar to prior years.
Ruslan Myatiev, director of Turkmen.news, will provide an update on the 2019 cotton harvest and observed evidence regarding forced labor.
Chloe Cranston, business and human rights manager at Anti-Slavery International, will review highlights from a report Anti-Slavery International published last year on cotton flows of Turkmen cotton to Turkey and other international destinations.
Patricia Jurewicz, RSN founder, will give an update on the Turkmen Cotton Pledge, investor education, and Cotton Campaign activities.
Even if you cannot attend the webinar, please register. All registrants will receive a link to the recorded webinar.
