Description: Fair trade is defined as “…a system of trade aimed at equitable treatment of farmers and workers worldwide. Its basic goals include fair wages, safe work environments and self-sufficiency for workers, cultural awareness, and consumer education.” In the spring of 2008, Kim Browning traveled to the Dominican Republic on an Equal Exchange sponsored trip to meet cocoa farmers and their families who participate in fair trade. Kim will share her amazing experience in the hope that it will help you better understand the importance of supporting fair trade. Your treat at the end of the presentation is some FAIR TRADE CHOCOLATE!
