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 email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

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.

Wednesday, November 12, 6pm EST: On tonight’s show, Mitchell will hold a Round Table on the latest trade agreement, the Trans-Pacific Partnership which may be getting signed imminently and which has menacing implications for the sovereignty of all nations including the U.S. yet the subject is minimally discussed in the media. When it is, the discussion is highly partial and omits key points, which will be discussed in the Round Table by Rocky Anderson, Gerald Celente and Kali Katt. In December 2012, Mitchell interviewed Mitch Jones of Food & Water Watch on the TPP, and it’s clearly time to do so again in light of its potentially imminent signing.
Rocky Anderson, former Mayor of Salt Lake City from 2000-2008, during his tenure, reduced the carbon footprint in the city by about 33%. He an American lawyer and politician. Rocky has practiced law for 21 years in Salt Lake City.
Gerald Celente is publisher of the world-renowned Trends Journal, has been interviewed on numerous national and international media for decades as a trends forecaster in the fields of economics and politics.
Kali Katt is a free-lance journalist and activist with a B.A. in Environmental Studies. She has been conducting on-the-ground educational actions in regard to the TPP for a few years now, to a public who, until meeting Kali, had no idea what it was or that it existed.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership stands as probably the most threatening, so-called "trade agreement", or document of any sort, to our Democracy and sovereignty as a nation. The TPP would legally oblige all nations who are signatories to be subject to a corporate-formed body which would have jurisdiction over any statutes in the U.S., including its Constitution.

Villains have seized control Most are not aware that our world has been taken captive. Forces hostile to us have taken over our planet – our courts, our governments, science, education, the media, the entertainment industry, the medical industry, the legal and illegal drug trade, and they have infiltrated mainstream religion as well. And we have fallen victim to the same syndrome as a kidnap victim, passively identifying with our malevolent captor! Strange, but true! Our whole world has been held captive for thousands of years – and we have come to identify with our captors.
Every American needs to understand that the entire national press is controlled, and is simply giving you the "news" you are supposed to have. Very soon, all alternative sources of news, including this website, will be shut down. That time draws ever closer.

"In order to put public opinion into our hands we must bring it into a state of bewilderment by giving expression from all sides to so many contradictory opinions and for such length of time as will suffice to make the [average person] lose their heads in the labyrinth and come to see that the best thing is to have no opinion of any kind, in matters political."
