Product Details

In Trumping the Race Card-A National Agenda: Moving Beyond Race and Racism, author and diversity consultant Rodney Patterson provides a thought-provoking examination of race and racism in the United States, which invites us to consider several questions, including:

- Are racism and prejudice the same or are they supporting ideologies?

- If a person is prejudice, does that make them racist as well?

- What makes a person a racist in the true sense of the word?

Mr. Patterson provides the Anatomy of an Ism to show how biases can evolve and transition into acts of racism by individuals, ultimately becoming institutionalized within systems. He encouraging each of us to avoid the inclination to "look the other way" and provides 10 strategies aptly designed as action steps. He also covers a broad spectrum of concepts, each designed to move us beyond race and racism, and closer to the idea of living as a true community.

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
