'GlobalFest 2016': An Education In Fair Trade

Chicago Fair Trade (CFT) will host its annual gala, ‘GlobalFest’ on Friday, Nov. 18, 2016. 

The event strives to educate consumers on how fair trade improves lives and stabilizes communities in developing countries. 

We talk about GlobalFest and fair trade in Asia with Katherine Bissell Córdova, executive director of CFT, Shayna Harris, a Chicago resident who worked for Oxfam America and conceived of starting a fair trade organization in Chicago and Megy Karydes, who founded the fair trade business, World Shoppe, and is a founding board member of Chicago Fair Trade.
