Mapping the Workers Rights Consortium - Member Schools

I did a map of the Schools that belong to the Workers Rights Consortium - an anti-sweatshop monitoring/accountability organization that was created by anti-sweatshop activists, the majority of whom were students.

I used the data from the WRC Affiliate Schools page, which I combined with my existing data for school locations.

Hope to come up with more activist uses of mapping. Days of Action for instance.

The geographical distribution is typical of privileged white middle to upper-middle class student activism. Also you can probably see the impact of more conservative states where the administrators would have been more resistant to joining the WRC (some liberal administrations gave in with very little pressure).
