The Fair Trade Committee aims to achieve Fair Trade Designation for Marist College. We will accomplish our goals by educating the community about human rights with regards to fair wages through programs, community outreach, and expanding the access to Fair Trade items on our campus. We seek to empower and inform our community so that we can continue to create sustainable change for the future.
