What can you do right now?

Signing our petition is the easiest way to show your support for this campaign!

You can find the link to our petition demanding that UW stop its exploitation of incarcerated workers below.


Call (or email) UW administration and demand that they treat workers with dignity and respect. We’ve provided a script:

UW Office of the President: 206-543-5010 | pres@uw.edu

Hi, my name is ________, I’m a [UW Student/Faculty Member/Alumnus/Member of the community], and I would like to let President Cauce know that the University of Washington must respect the rights of all workers, including those currently incarcerated. 

The UW has used its Supplier Code of Conduct as an excuse to deny the rights of incarcerated workers, and has failed to uphold the University’s mission to combat systemic inequity. This is unacceptable.

I urge the University of Washington and President Cauce to amend the Supplier Code of Conduct to include incarcerated workers in its definition of “employee.”

I also urge President Cauce to demand that Correctional Industries pay incarcerated workers prevailing wage, and if they don’t, UW must sever ties with CI.

Can you ensure that President Cauce receives my message?
