Additional Information: Jim Keady (KEE-DEE) is a nationally renowned educator and speaker in the area of social justice. Jim has spoken across the United States and at international venues to thousands of interested audience members. He has been sought out by members of the U.S. Congress, as well as university administrators, religious and union leaders, and student groups to offer his personal and professional experience and critiques on the issues of sweatshops, globalization and social justice. Jim was a soccer coach with the St. John’s University Red Storm, the Men’s NCAA “Division One” National Champions, when he stood up against Nike and their sweatshops and it cost him his job. Since then, he has made ending sweatshop labor his life mission. Many people ask the question, “What is it like to live on a sweatshop wage in a developing country?” Jim Keady found out. He spent one month in an Indonesian factory workers’ slum living on $1.25 a day, a typical wage paid to Nike’s subcontracted workers. At this year’s summit he will share his personal stories of living with factory workers and he will provide provocative analysis and clear direction on how we can get involved in the fight to stop sweatshops.
