“We encourage the community to join us at any of these free film showings around our community. These films are brought to you by donations from Fond du Lac Fair Trade Towns, Soroptimist International of Fond du Lac, and Just Fare Market in hopes to improve the awareness of Fair Trade goods, principles, and practices,” states Carol Smith, founder of this film festival and Just Fare Market.
