Please join the North West Fair Trade Coalition in welcoming Fair Trade artisans Sonia Anahue Uscamayta from the Munay Rumi jewelry cooperative in Lima, Peru and Yody Gladys Moran Trillo from the El Mercurio knitting cooperative in Huancavelica, Peru on Tuesday May 17.
This event will introduce you to Sonia and Yody who will share how Fair Trade has affected their lives, and the lives of so many women around the world. Both women were forced to relocate their families in search of a better life to earn more money or escape violence – and despite their move, still found life difficult. Yet since they’ve become a part of the Fair Trade movement, their horizons have expanded and opportunities have opened.

Where: First Unitarian Church, 1011 SW 12th Ave, Portland, OR 97204
