Product Details

Ever since the Nazis marched into Monique's small French village, terrorizing it, nothing surprises her, until the night Monique encounters the little ghost sitting at the end of her bed. She turns out to be a girl named Sevrine, who has been hiding from the Nazis in Monique's basement. Playing after dark, the two become friends, until, in a terrifying moment, they are discovered, sending both of their families into a nighttime flight.

Economic Revolution

Every product you consume is brought to you by human hands. From planting seeds or manufacturing, to packaging and imports, to the employee stocking shelves in your local grocery store. But what if you found out that those hands were being forced to work? What if your favorite chocolate company relies on child labor for harvesting their cocoa? Or that the factory workers sewing your clothes are harassed in their workplace? Or farm workers growing your food are fired for becoming pregnant?

Unfortunately, there is not a whole lot of accountability for large corporations that control industries of mass production.

This is why we are committed to providing alternatives to exploitative trade systems known for exploitation and human rights abuses.

In our retail and online store, our products reflect and support the mission of the Peace & Justice Center. Therefore, we focus on fair trade, local, and educational products. We partner with small producers in the Global South, and actively work to cultivate long-term trading relationships as a way to alleviate poverty, ensure human rights, and protect the environment.

This unique shopping experience will bring you closer to the humans who make your products and inspire you to engage in the economic revolution
