COALITION LAUNCHES TO "SHUT DOWN SHEIN," PROTECT AMERICANS FROM FOREIGN INFLUENCE
WASHINGTON, March 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- After a slew of reports regarding SHEIN's questionable business practices, human rights abuses, and ties to TikTok and the Chinese Communist Party, a new coalition today announced the launch of "Shut Down SHEIN." This campaign will educate relevant U.S. government officials and the American public to the ways in which SHEIN is alleged to be committing human rights abuses, exploiting import laws to evade billions in tariffs and making its unwitting American consumers accomplices in the process.
- The company has been accused of horrific working conditions, and their clothing has been linked to cotton picked by slaves in Xinjiang.
- With their use of Xinjiang cotton, SHEIN is violating Federal Law, the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA), and making American consumers unknowingly complicit.
- Shut Down SHEIN is determined to protect American consumers and ensure a level playing field.
