Understanding Free Trade Agreements Presentation & Discussion

How much do you know about free trade agreements like NAFTA, TPP, and WTO?

Come to the Peace & Justice Center on Saturday, June 24 from 3-4 pm for our Understanding Free Trade Agreements Presentation and Discussion! This program discusses how free trade’s good intentions, like boosting economies and encouraging trade, have not necessarily benefited countries as a result of developmental inequality and corporate greed. The presentation will highlight some of the larger trade agreements, such as GATT, WTO, and NAFTA to provide an overview about how these policies have had detrimental effects on the Global South. The program will conclude with an introduction to the concept of fair trade and ways that we, as consumers, can fight for fair trade over free trade.

This presentation will be led by Amy Crosswhite, our Fair Trade Store & Program Manager. People are encouraged to arrive at 2:30 to participate in a PJC New Volunteer Orientation. We are committed to including the Deaf community and others who may need language interpretation. If you need ASL or other language interpretation, please let us know ASAP and we will work to make that happen!
