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.

Building New Hope collaborates with Central Americans to build sustainable livelihoods by linking people and communities with educational and economic opportunities
Every cup of New Hope coffee has a direct impact on families in both
the El Porvenir community and the greater Pittsburgh community.
El Porvenir has sent their first generation of students on to high school and university
The community has preserved 2000 acres of native tropical dryland forest, providing critical habitat for migrating birds and other species as well as keeping the watershed and land clean from pesticides and herbicides
Most importantly, the farmers
have been able to keep their
worker-owned cooperative and
their future intact
