Chicago is home to the largest fair trade coalition in the United States. Formed in 2006, Chicago Fair Trade is comprised of member businesses, educational institutions, congregations, non-profit organizations and individual activists. The coalition’s popular 12th annual Globalfest gala fundraiser on Sept. 28 will be emceed by our very own Jerome McDonnell. The gala will be held at 5:30 p.m. at The National Museum of Mexican Art in the Heart of Chicago neighborhood. To discuss spreading ethical commerce, we’re joined by Katherine Bissell Cordova, the executive director of Chicago Fair Trade.
