Do you know the differences between Fair Trade and Free Trade? With our world becoming increasingly globalized, it is more important than ever to understand how our trade practices impact the world around us.
Come to the Peace & Justice Center on Saturday, January 28 from 3:30-4:30 pm to learn about how policies and practices favoring globalization have allowed corporations to profit, while harming our social and environmental systems. The presentation will also discuss the ways in which the Fair Trade movement provides an alternative to Free Trade, seeking to counterbalance these atrocities, at a minimum. Following the presentation, there will be a facilitated discussion aimed at better understanding the complexity of globalization and trade.
People are encouraged to arrive at 3 pm to participate in a PJC New Volunteer Orientation.
