I’m Terry Collingsworth, the human rights lawyer who filed landmark lawsuits against Nestle, Mars, Hershey, Tesla others. I lead International Rights Advocates, working to end human rights violations in global supply chains. Ask me anything!
We had so many amazing folks join us last time around and as promised, we wanted to come back and share some updates with the community!
Throughout my long career, I have been at the forefront of every major effort to hold corporations accountable for failing to comply with international law or their own professed standards in their codes of conduct in their treatment of workers or communities in their far flung supply chains.
Rather than assume multinationals operate in good faith, I shifted my focus entirely, and for the last 25 years, have specialized in international human rights litigation.
The prospect of getting a legal judgement along with the elevated public profile of a major legal case (thank you, Reddit!) gives IRAdvocates a concrete tool to force bad actors in the global economy to improve their practices.
