Pot Luck Dinner and “Trades of Hope” Global Women’s Enterprise
March 21, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This free event pairs the ECC’s popular community pot-luck dinner (bring a dish to share or come anyway) with a presentation by Cam Brown, who represents Trades of Hope, an organization that “works to create sustainable, fair trade businesses with women in poverty by selling their handmade products in the US through the home-party business model.”
Trades of Hope brings safety to women in India, Uganda, Haiti, and Costa Rica, and gives them a chance to learn a trade making jewelry and to support themselves and their families in freedom, rather than their usual fate, living in abject poverty or working in the sex trade.
