There are hundreds of labels in the marketplace. We are starting to see Fair Trade labels on apparel products. What does it mean? Larger retailers often demand certifications, but should they? This workshop will provide an overview of current fairness labels to help us understand the complexities of certification standards, the impacts they have on producers and workers, and how they fit into the fair trade movement.

Thursday, 10:15 AM – 11:30 AM in Standley 1
