Fair Trade Sale: Buy Once, Give Twice

Saturday, November 16, 2019 to Sunday, November 17, 2019
Sat 3-7, Sun 8-1
St. Noel Banquet Center (at St. Noel Church), 35200 Chardon Rd., Willoughby Hills, OH 44094

IRTF works towards justice and equity in the distribution, access to, and participation in the production and consumption of the world’s resources for the people of Central America and Colombia. The conventional trade model is accelerating a race to the bottom that hurts workers, consumers, and the environment. Moreover, it further divides us into “haves” and “have nots.” As an alternative model, fair trade sets a series of standards to ensure fair wages and human dignity for producers, community investment, environmental sustainability, and more. 

IRTF’s fair trade program generates thousands of dollars in much needed income for artisans and farmers in Latin America.  This happens through the generous invitations of schools, community groups, and congregations that offer us table space at 40-50 events each year. Fair trade is an important part of IRTF’s human rights mission: to call together people in NE Ohio to walk in solidarity with oppressed peoples of Central America and Colombia to achieve peace, justice, human rights and systemic transformation through nonviolence.

Come visit the IRTF fair trade booth and other fair trade and local vendors.
