Fair Trade OLA
Fair Trade OLA is a ministry of Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church (OLA) in Claremont, CA. We use Scripture and Catholic Social Teaching to show the connection between our Faith and Fair Trade. We employ Sunday bulletins, house gatherings, and events to spread the word. We facilitate putting Faith into action by promoting the use and sale of Fair Trade products in the parish and by publicizing a list of local merchants with the Fair Trade products they offer.
