Join us on zoom on Wednesday, October 20th from 6:00pm to 7:00pm to learn more about How "Fair" is Fair Trade Coffee? Learn how the way you spend your money can help to change the world. We will look more deeply into how Fair Trade  can impact farmers, families, and entire communities, and at some of shortcomings and tensions in the Fair Trade movement.
