Your Call: How does fair trade coffee affect the lives of small scale farmers?
On the September 7th edition of Your Call, we’ll rebroadcast a conversation we had about Connected by Coffee, a documentary about the lives and history of the people who grow coffee.
Over a billion cups of coffee are consumed every day. The industry is worth over $100 billion, but most rural coffee growers live in poverty. What can we do to support farmers using fairly traded coffee as a tool for social justice? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
