The River Church South
Our church got involved in working to fight Human Trafficking in March of 2012 which easily led us to wanting to make good consumer choices. We now have Fair Trade sugar, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, and display an Equal Exchange poster above our cafe table.
Incorporate Fair Trade Education into Your Social Teachings
Connect the tenets of your faith to Fair Trade. Empower congregants to live their faith by being conscious consumers.
Commit to Purchase Fair Trade Products When They Are Available
Work with your congregation to offer Fair Trade products regularly at services, vending machines or offices.
Include Fair Trade in Events
Serve up Fair Trade coffee, tea, and other products when possible at meetings, in gathering places, and at events.
What an awesome morning of hearing the testimonies of three awesome people in our church.
We are partnering with IJM to share about how human trafficking affects our world. We’ll be talking about how we can help end trafficking – which includes things like purchasing fair trade products! Join us if you can. 🙂
We are partnering with Jubilee USA to bring attention to the ways that debt and legislation in need of reform connects to the larger problem of trafficking. Through prayer, we will raise awareness for social consciousness, loving our neighbor, and understanding that how we spend our dollars can impact the world for good.
