Educational Presentations Given in 2021

In 2021, the Equal Exchange team connected with groups around the country to give virtual presentations on a variety of topics related to the work that we do in the realms of food justice, environmental sustainability, ethical sourcing and more.

Presentations on issues related to Equal Exchange’s mission help educate and inspire groups to take meaningful actions that help build an alternative trade system that benefits small scale farmers, consumers and the environment . After attending presentations, we’ve found that people feel committed to drinking only fairly traded coffee, eating chocolate produced without exploitation or forced labor, and are motivated to hold fair trade sales or create neighborhood buying clubs.

If you’re group is interested in having someone from the Equal Exchange team visit your group virtually, please reach out.
