Celebrate Fair Trade - May 5th!

First Christian Church held its first ever World Fair Trade Day celebration! Our celebration came in two forms: a fair trade world market and a free film screening. The market shopping on the church lawn featured great gift items from SERRV/A Greater Gift and Bridge for Africa.

The film, "Black Gold," takes a hard look at the coffee industry and the low prices most coffee farmers receive. This film is a must-see for any coffee drinker!

If the term "fair trade" is unfamiliar to you, then a good place to start might be our Fair Trade Primer. You can also visit our Global Holiday Faire site for more information about fair trade. And the Fair Trade Federation is a great resource!
