The Annual Spring Membership Meeting includes brief reports from key staff and Board members on the state of our Co-op, plus a free buffet and coffee, tea and dessert for all attending Weavers Way members. BYOB — and bring your own place-setting, because this is a Zero-Waste GMM! Guest Speaker (and Weavers Way working member) Dr. Keith Brown, Associate Professor of Sociology at Saint Joseph's University, will present a talk on "Buying into Fair Trade." He'll briefly examine the history of fair-trade certification and explain what attracts consumers to these products, and he'll get into the strengths and limitations of fair trade, ultimately answering the question, "Is fair trade worth it?" Dr. Brown's research and teaching interests include fair trade, ethical consumption, globalization, culture and morality in markets.
