You may think you only vote during election season, but that’s not true. You vote every day with the choices you make, including the products you buy. You have significant purchasing power, and what you do with your dollars tells companies a lot about what is important to you.
Join us at our next quarterly meeting as we focus on better buying habits in time for the holidays, which are done through a safe supply chain. A safe supply chain simply means that the items you buy were made without slave labor. From the raw materials to the finished product, all workers were treated fairly, paid a livable wage, and not forced or coerced to perform their job. Sadly, with over 30 million slaves around the world living today, you may find yourself surprised to know the reality of how your chocolate, clothes, soap, lamps, toys, electronics and anything in-between came to be.
Hear first-hand from companies who strive for a safe supply chain, and learn easy steps that you can take to become a savvy-spending abolitionist. We'll also debut our Purchase With Purpose guide featuring 250+ local, regional and national brands. And we'll recap members of our core team's experience to the Global Forum.
