To end forced and child labor in the cotton fields of Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan
The Cotton Campaign is a global coalition of human rights, labor, investor and business organizations dedicated to eradicating child labor and forced labor in cotton production. Our goals are to end the state systems of forced labor in Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan’s cotton sectors. We pursue our goals by advocating to the governments of Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan; advocating to governments, companies, investors, and international institutions to use their influence with the governments of Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan; supporting civil society in Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan; and raising public awareness and activism.
