Join Hub Cymru Africa and Fair Trade Wales, to discuss Anti-Racism within the Fair Trade movement in this free online session.
Many people will have heard of Fair Trade coffee and bananas, but don’t realise that its official definition is that ‘Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade’. Fair Trade systems focus on rebalancing supply chains and ensuring equity and voice for producers. There is still always more that the Fair Trade movement can do to focus on and promote anti-racism. In the past few years, many Fair Trade Organisations have been going on journeys to become more partner-led.
Hear from several Fair Trade Organisations on recent shifts in how they communicate their work to a UK audience and how this approach links to Hub Cymru Africa’s Anti-Racism Charter point 8: “We will adopt appropriate and thoughtful language, storytelling and images. We recognise that they have meaning, can cause harm and can reinforce racism”
Facilitated by Lenshina Hines, Chair BAFTS UK and co-founder, Fair and Fabulous the event will also be an opportunity to ask questions.
