Traveling in Ohio: next event March 31

Ohio is buzzing about Fair Trade these days.  This weekend I had the honor, thanks to my day job,* of giving a keynote address at the 3rd annual Global Solidarity Conference held at the University of Dayton.  I was so inspired by about 80 people who, during particularly tough financial times in their home state, dedicated a Saturday to discussing how to promote economic justice. 

At the end of this month, I head back to Ohio participate in a community night at Cedarville University.  I love being part of campus events (see photo above from my time at my alma mater, Agnes Scott College). I'll be joining the owner of Stoney Creek Roasters, professors from campus, and leaders of student trade groups.  This public event is intended for students and members of the Cedarville, Xenia, and Yellow Springs communities.  If you are in the neighborhood, please join us Tuesday, March 31, from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at the Stevens Student Center.
