Fair Trade, like coffee, is complex, rich and fascinating.

Equal Exchange announces a newly available educational resource: The History of Authentic Fair Trade.  In comic book format they present a version of Fair Trade that is shared by many Equal Exchange colleagues, allies, and partners.  They hope that by presenting the material in this way, with heroes and villains, and condensed stories, it will pique the reader’s curiosity so that she will dig deeper, ask questions, and ultimately make a conscious decision about where she stands in relation to small farmers, co-operatives, and democratic movements, as well as corporations, certifying agencies, and alternative trade organizations.

So sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee as you contemplate this history of Fair Trade, and decide how it all fits together on your path to peace and social justice.
