Fair Trade LA March 5, 2006 Launch: Preliminary agenda.


Be there for Fair Trade LA’s kick-off educational event!

Sunday, March 5 at 2pm
United University Church @ Jefferson/Hoover – USC

(Park in gate #5 and say that you’re going to United University Church for free parking)

2 pm — Registration, name badges, sampling of goodies, browse tables and materials, meet people/network.

We will then have opening remarks by Eisha Mason, informational presentations and Q&A by Michael Sheridan of CRS to discuss Fair Trade from an international perspective, David Funkhouser of Transfair USA from a national perspective, and Allis Druffel of Holy Family Church from a local perspective.
After the presentations/Q&A, we will break up into smaller groups to begin brainstorming ideas for promoting Fair Trade in various sectors of the community.
We will then come back together to discuss steps to be taken next and adjourn at 5pm.

People will be welcome to stay and network, help us finish the coffee, tea and goodies and /or help clean up a bit.

  1. Hi – I won’t be able to make it to the kick-off organizing event, but will be there in spirit. :) I have a weekend-long training that weekend. Looking forward to hearing what comes out of the event and how I can be involved!
