Fair Trade Week (Dec 1-4)

ft

This year's Fair Trade Week is Dec. 1-4! Take some time to read a bit more about fair trade and how it relates to Catholic Social Teaching principals.

WHY SHOULD WE CARE? 

"Solidarity is not just a feeling of vague compassion or shallow distress at the misfortunes of so many people, both near and far. On the contrary, it is a firm and preserving determination to commit oneself to the common good."
- Economic Justice for All

GET INVOLVED! For more information about Fair Trade awareness on campus,  contact Kate Lecci at leccik@duq.edu
