YESS: Yarn Ethically & Sustainably Sourced (YESS) works to eliminate forced labor from the cotton textile value chain by building capacity and managing an assessment of value chain actors’ ability to identify, address, and prevent sourcing cotton produced with forced labor.  A new pilot program is now underway to expand this work to yarn spinners and textile mills.  Please join USFIA and the ad-hoc Forced Labor Working Group on February 11 from 3-4 pm ET for an update on the YESS pilot, planned activities for 2021, and opportunities to participate.
