The event, featuring speakers (Eisha Mason, KPFK radio host and speaker/trainer on nonviolence and social justice issues; David Funkhouser, TransFair USA; and Michael Sheridan, Catholic Relief Services Fair Trade), a tasting of fair trade products, and action planning sessions, will kick off a Los Angeles-based initiative to educate people about the Fair Trade movement, and to make Fair Trade products more easily available in local outlets.

Look sharp and you may catch sight of our own GreenLAGirl!
