"In a gentle way, you can shake the world." -Mahatma Gandhi
Celebrate Gandhi's birthday by learning about fair trade: a global movement of sustainability and transparency. Maria Luisa Whittingham, owner of ML and Maria Luisa Boutiques, will share her experience meeting artisans in India and discuss the impact that we can make as consumers. Featuring images from the trip, specific personal stories of the power of fair trade, and time for Q&A, this gathering will highlight the importance of an ethical global marketplace. Enjoy a cup of Indian chai and purchase raffle tickets, too!
The slideshow will be available throughout the day. Maria's presentation begins at 6:30pm; seating is limited.
