Chicago Fair Trade (CFT) will have its annual gala, ‘GlobalFest’ on Friday. The event aims to educate on how fair trade improves lives and stabilizes communities in developing countries. This year’s theme focuses on Asia. We’ll talk about GlobalFest and fair trade in Asia with Katherine Bissell Córdova, executive director of CFT. We’ll also talk with Tony Dreyfuss, co-founder and owner of Metropolis Coffee, CFT’s newest partner. His company works with coffee farmers across Asia.
