Made in L.A. is an Emmy award winning film that follows the remarkable story of three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles garment sweatshops as they embark on a three-year odyssey to win basic labor protections from a trendy clothing retailer. In honor of May Day, the makers of the film have launched a nationwide screening campaign from April 15th to May 31st and beyond. They are inviting student groups, grassroots organization, congregations and individuals from all over the country to join the efforts to use the film as a catalyst for dialogue, debate and, ultimately, a change towards humane labor and immigration reform. Details and a short new web video on the May Day Campaign can be found at http://www.MadeInLA.com/MayDay.
