Fair Trade Show, Nov. 26 to 29
- Union Atrium
In this era of global economic interdependence, decisions made in the United States about what to eat, drink, wear and buy affect the lives of people in other countries—textile workers in Asia, farmers in Africa, artisans in Latin America.
The Fair Trade and Fair Food movements seek to raise awareness of these tenuous relationships and other aspects of conventional trade that often exploit women, children, the poor and vulnerable.
Spiritan Campus Ministry, in collaboration with Catholic Relief Services, the Office of Mission and Identity and the Charles Owen Rice Lecture Series, hosts the Fair Trade show for campus community.
