This boutique is being held in response to the tragic news of the collapse of the garment factory in Bangladesh which caused the death of more than 1120 workers. The event will include an advocacy area where you can:
- Learn more about fair trade working practices and standards
- Find out how your actions can help to try and prevent further human tragedies
- Petition the Canadian and Bangladesh Government to care about workers as they negotiate trade deals
- Write letters to retailers and companies which operate dangerous conditions for workers
All profits from the Boutique will go to Save the Children and PLAN Bangladesh to help the children affected by the tragedy.
The boutique will be open from Thursday June 6th to Sunday June 9th, between 12 and 5pm. The fair will be held at The Atrium, 1444 Union Avenue (behind Christ Church Cathedral, 635 St Catherine, corner of Union).
The Fair Trade Working Group, and the Social Justice Action Group.
