Southwest Fair Trade convergence in Austin January 30

Save the Date!
Saturday, January 30th 2010
Austin Texas,
AFL-CIO hall @ 1106 Lavaca Street

Come and join fellow student and community activists and leaders from Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Texas for the 2010 USFT Southwest Fair Trade Convergence. Together we will hear panels and presentations from community activists and leaders about Fair Trade, anti-oppression, community and campus organizing, theater of the oppressed, and how YOU can take it back to your own campus and community. Bring your stories, your friends, your passion and excitement for social justice, and share as we share with you.

Everyone that registers before the 15th will receive a sweet re-usable fair trade convergence bag printed with art work and packed with goodies! The small fee will help defray the costs of the convergence, cover two meals and snacks, and the rest will go to USFT to help events like this continue to happen.

We’ve got a delicious organic and vegetarian breakfast and lunch menu planned and a day packed full of awesome workshops and speakers. In an effort to be sustainable we will be using non-disposable plates, bowls, water bottles, and utensils. Some will be provided but if you can bring stuff from home!

Thanks so much and see you on the 30th!

We hope to see you there!
