  1. Fairfield University Students for Social Justice will be meeting with the Assistant Vice President to discuss ways in which we can work with our dining services and other campus partners to increase the amount of fair trade products on campus. We are also going to invite a local Fair Trade retailer to campus to present to students on the Fair Trade products she supports. We are looking to continue educating our campus by also setting up a table in our campus center to increase familiarity with Fair Trade products and the importance of supporting them.
