Please help.

Young women guest workers from Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are being repeatedly sexually abused at the Classic Group of factories in Jordan while sewing Hanes "C9" clothing for women and men, which is sold exclusively at Target.

There is no man or woman in the United States who would knowingly purchase garments made by poor women from the developing world who were sexually abused and beaten.

Read the new Report/Update and testimony of "Nazma"-a young woman raped at the Classic factory, and you will understand what has been going on for years at Classic.

Let's start with Hanes. Here's their number: 336-519-8080 and speak the name "Chris Fox" to be transferred to Mr. Chris Fox, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility of Hanesbrands. Please call and ask them to move aggressively to remove the accused rapist Anil Santha and to make sure no young woman is every again abused in the Classic factory.

Please also ask your friends and colleagues to contact Hanes and sign the joint letter to Wal-Mart-which we will CC to Hanes and Target.
