BENEFITING: CHICAGO FAIR TRADE
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
Run for Change is Chicago Fair Trade's marathon team. Runners commit to raise money to support the educational work of Chicago Fair Trade that mobilizes consumers to use their purchasing power so that producers around the world can build sustainable communities. Our motto " Ask the Right Questions" helps consumers investigate:Where was it made? Did workers get a fair wage? Was the environment protected?
Over the past two years, our network of fair trade advocates have help us enact anti-sweatshop ordinances in Chicago and in Cook County. Check out our facebook page and photos below to see faces of those changing the way we consume, building awareness about the people who produce the things we consume.
