Fair trade

Submitted By Sara Lamnin

Discover fair trade coffees, teas, chocolates and more on Saturday, May 21, 2011, at the Fair Trade Festival in Hayward. Fair trade promotes a fair price for products; investment in people and communities; environmental sustainability; economic empowerment of small-scale producers, direct trade and fair labor conditions.

This dynamic event will feature local artists, food and information about the ethics of producing food and goods. The Hayward Community Action Network will be selling products from its Homeless Angels Line and other hand-crafted goods.

There will be a screening and discussion of "The Dark Side of Chocolate." Learn how child labor is often used to produce many of the things that people enjoy and how we can demand accountability and change.
