The Ohio Fair Trade Teach-In & Expo returns to John Carroll. This will be a day of education and shopping. We will feature three speakers presenting different ways the fair trade movement is changing the banana industry. The exposition hall will have over 40 fair trade vendors and informational tables. Without a doubt, it is the finest regional fair trade event in the country. This is a must attend event for anyone in Ohio interested in justice for the Global South.
