Justice for All

1/24/2015 4:11:15 PM

Have you ever become angry at something that made your blood boil not because it directly affected you but because it was harming someone else?

A core foundation of the fair trade relationship is justice.

As I prepare to leave in a few days to visit my brother-in-law, James, in Kenya, I will be pondering the effects of the fair trading relationship with artisan groups in Africa. As I ponder, I plan to work on completing the application to become a certified fair trade retailer with the Fair Trade Federation.

My thoughts on the importance of justice will continue to be shaped and molded.
