The Hands That Feed: Fair Trade with Cedarville University

Next week, Tuesday, March 31, I'm going to be joining students from Cedarville University in Ohio for a "community night." To get a sense of why students are organizing the event, check out the video The Hands That Feed from Benjamin Schmanke on Vimeo. I got inspired just watching this clip and can't wait to meet the students who are so concerned about economic justice.

After we all enjoy some Fair Trade refreshments, I will give a talk on why student and how student participation in the Fair Trade movement is so important. Then there will be a panel discussion consisting of six individuals debating pros and cons of Fair Trade, followed by audience Q &A. The evening will wrap up with a Fair Trade Fair benefiting the work of Lutheran World Relief.

The event is being organized by the campus group "Ekplesso." Join us if you are around Dayton!
