Human Rights Club Hosting Ethical Trade Market Dec. 10-11

Iona Preparatory’s Human Rights Club will be selling various ethical trade items from around the globe in support of Catholic Relief Services (CRS) during lunch periods on Dec. 10-11.

The items the Human Rights Club will be selling include mugs, scarves, earrings, necklaces, ornaments, coffee and chocolate. Many items are under $20 and make great stocking-stuffers. Only cash is accepted.

"When I wrote my application to travel to Ghana with CRS, I was asked, 'What will you do when you return?' HRC Co-Moderator Mrs. Patricia Gray remarked. "I said I would host an Ethical Trade Fair and now, with the help of my co-moderator, Christine Chana, and the Human Rights Club, that is happening!"

Catholic Relief Services Ethical Trade is a celebration of the dignity of work. It is a community of fair trade believers dedicated to improving the lives of the world’s most vulnerable by choosing to consume differently. Together, they are creating a better world through education, advocacy and conscientious purchasing.

Purchasing Ethical Trade products helps the people who make these items or grow and harvest the coffee and cocoa beans. The Human Rights Club will be donating the profits back to Catholic Relief Services.
