I met Katy today who represents and works with Mayan Hands and UPAVIM Crafts while attending the Mission Presbytery meetings here in Austin, TX. Prebytery is a collection of leaders from all over the boundaries of the Mission Presbytery area within the structure of the USA Presbyterian Churches. Katy has agreed to share her "mission" and "passion" behind why she is involved in the fair trade markets/ministries and why it is so important for us all to become so involved in this process.
I'm excited for her to be a part of my show. Mark your calendars now!
Fair Trade Monday series is an attempt at educating the public about fair trade ministries/markets and how it intertwines with the causes to end global gender violence.

I met Chris Cloyd last year at the World of Hope Fair Trade Market at Hope Presbyterian Church in November 2012.
HOPE is a nonprofit corporation created to empower destitute families to lift themselves out of poverty and sickness. Though HOPE does much charity work, its primary goal is to promote justice for the oppressed by providing fair business markets where all workers can earn livable wages. HOPE markets Fair Trade products from all over the world in stores and traveling booths wherever we can, esp at churches. Each sale makes a significant impact for artisans, often just one Fair trade sale gives families more income that a week of hard labor! HOPE would love to come do a presentation and booth for your church or group. Contact Chris Cloyd for more info 512-550-9282 firstname.lastname@example.org
Please join us as we initiate the first of a FAIR TRADE MONDAYS series, focusing on empowerment, keeping those in poverished nations from being entrapped in gender violence issues such as domestic violence, human trafficking, sex trafficking and more while we learn why it is so important that we buy fair trade products and services whenever possible.
If you are a vendor that wishes to paricipate in our 2013 World of Hope Fair Trade Market at Hope Presbyterian in Austin, Texas, please contact us at email@example.com as soon as possible.
The fair trade ecosystem has been around for awhile with roots in Africa. Today, it is a brand that stands for many things, but at the heart is a system that increases benefits to producers in Africa and other emerging regions while also increase value to the end consumer.
Michael Nkonu, Managing Director of Fair Trade Africa based in Nairobi, Kenya joins us to share where the fair trade market is today and where it is going in the future. Creative entrepreneurs will hear insights to give them perspectives on how to do business in Africa to be successful.

Special guest Cecilia Dinio Durkin
Cecilia has been working in Women's Economic Empowerment since living in Botswana, Africa in 2003. In 2006, she returned to the USA to sell their Fair Trade products. The retail and wholesale business she created is Women's Work which has expanded to include items from over 20 countries and now affects thousands of women from around the world. Her expertise in product development while using Fair Trade Principles has various governments sending her to work with women and women-owned businesses to develop handicrafts, marketing materials and branding of products to the US market. Last year her efforts won her a Best Practice Award from the Committee to Teach About the UN. And this year her business has been recognized by the area Chamber of Commerce by receiving the Athena Award and from Hudson Valley Magazine, Best Woman-Owned Business award for her positive impact on the lives of women.
Free Trade? Fair Trade? What's the difference and why should you care? How does it affect competition and prices? Tune in with Mark & Isabel to discuss this crucial and overlooked topic.
Joan Harper and Phil Fehrle are representatives of Fair Trade - L.A., an organization that helps people in other countries find economic stability through education, marketing and fair trade practices. Fair Trade demands equality, respect, and sustainability at all levels of society. Fair Trade provides access to quality agricultural and artisan items, often not available in our hemisphere while allowing consumers to support social and economic justice with their well-spent dollar.

I can see that the people are not getting this. Let me be clear, what the "Actions" of police and thier supporters are telling us is that we don't have rights. You should believe what you see. I'm seeing clip after clip of so-called "Black" folks dealing with police officers who have been sanctioned to do what they do, still trying to appeal to a sense of shame in the harrassing officer and realizing that there is "Nothing There". 1965, civil rights and the great society was a "Delay".... Things are going back to the way that they were before the "Delay". The delay masked the fact that "You live in the land of your enemy".... From that perspective of being at war in enemy territory, would you expect fair treatment and rights granted to the citizens of the country that you are hostage to? Sounds silly doesn't it? The sad fact is that many people are not only in delusionment about the people here who have persecuted us, but also the Most High, Himself. This is "His" judgment upon His children. You don't think He'll do it? Read revelation 11:8.....
