Charles Kernaghan is the director of the National Labor Committee, an independent, non-profit human rights organization focused on the protection of worker rights--especially those of the young women assembling garments, shoes, toys and other products for export to the U.S. in Central America, the Caribbean, China and other developing countries.....Kernaghan has led numerous fact-finding missions to Central America and the Caribbean--most recently bringing a delegation of U.S. university students to investigate working conditions in the free trade zones. He and the NLC have hosted U.S. tours of workers from Honduras, El Salvador, Haiti and China; made several videos; written numerous research reports, and run a number of highly successful international solidarity/corporate campaigns, which have gained enormous media attention and helped the NLC to develop one of the best social justice networks in the country. The NLC now works with over 10,000 religious, labor, student, women's, human rights, solidarity and community groups across the country.
