Think Fair Chattanooga

October is Fair Trade Month. We're gonna do something about that.

We're teaming up with our friends at Main & Mocha to put on a small event. You want to read a marketing blurb? Thought you'd never ask...

Think Fair Chattanooga will be an evening of engaging Fair Trade with the eyes, mind, and taste buds.

Come in from the autumn chill for a hot cup of coffee brewed from fairly traded beans, and stay for a viewing of Buyer Be Fair: The Promise of Product Certification. This film takes the viewer around the globe to show how conscious consumers and businesses can use the market to promote social justice and environmental sustainability through product labeling.

World Next Door will produce the event to be hosted by Main & Mocha, located in the Carter Center at the corner of Main Street and Market Street in Chattanooga's Southside district.

What: Think Fair Chattanooga
When: 7:00 PM Thursday, October 23
Where: Main & Mocha, 1463 Market Street, Chattanooga, TN
Why: For the poor, for Chattanooga, and for free coffee and chocolate!
