Just Consumption: Spending with Integrity
A panel discussion on buying justly
Presented by:
The Boston Faith & Justice Network


Thursday, November 17, 6:30 PM
Church of the Covenant, 67 Newbury Street, Boston


Do you know where your money goes when you buy those raspberries or that new phone? Does figuring it out seem overwhelming? We all are participants in the economy, both locally and globally. How can we best use our purchases to support justice rather than exploitation?

Join the Boston Faith & Justice Network for a panel discussion on the practicalities and nuances of just consumption--spending money with integrity.

Sign up at our Eventbrite link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/just-consumption-spending-with-integrity-tickets-25650676865
Some questions the panel will address will include:

Who are we actually supporting with our spending?
What role does Fair Trade play?
Is buying justly more expensive?
What difference do our spending choices make?
How do we deal with all of the tradeoffs?

Panelists will include:

Oliver Gottfried, Senior Campaigns Strategist, Oxfam America, on the Poultry Workers Campaign;
John Maudlin, Co-founder of the Fields Corner Business Lab, on supporting local communities;
Peter Buck, Senior Representative, Interfaith Program and Community Sales, Equal Exchange, on Fair Trade;
Maura Hodge, Audit Partner, KPMG, on corporate social responsibility;
Sarah Durfey Dunham, Director of the Abolitionist Network, on managing the tradeoffs.

The panelists will present and interact, followed by ample time for Q & A. Come out and be part of the discussion!
