This organization does wonderful work in Guatemala. I have been apart of this for over a year now. They build and operate schools in Guatemala and really need to raise funds in order to provide lunch for the children during the school year. Every little bit is a little bit more. You can visit and learn more at www.ninosdeguatemala.org. I will be volunteering on Saturday. We are still looking for volunteers and runners if anyone is interested. Email me at tamara@ninosdeguatemala.org

FAIR Vodka is a spirits brand, dedicated to high quality products that are sourced ethically and sustainably.

Liz Alig works with a variety of fair trade producers around the globe and using eco-friendly fabrics including: organic cotton, hand woven fiber, and recycled material. Liz Alig is dedicated to fair trade practices. We do this by partnering with NGOs and women’s cooperatives that have likeminded goals of empowering those living in poverty, paying a fair wage for work, and training women to become more economically independent. We think that fair trade also means linking the producer with the consumer and helping tell the story of the people who make our clothes, as well as, donating a portion of our sales back to developing countries to support the skills training of women.”

Sustainable NYC is a Fair Trade, eco boutique, and cafe in the East Village. Come check out this store where you can buy responsibly in service to the environment and social causes.

Event: Wealth, Education, Family and Community: A New Paradigm for Black America

watkins-farrakhan

 

Although we as African Americans were officially granted our freedom nearly 150 years ago, many of us do not feel truly free.  Some of us get up and go to jobs that we do not enjoy, working for people who don’t like us very much.   Then, when those companies feel that we’ve gotten out of line or they don’t need us anymore, we are sent out the door.

There is also a great deal of frustration with regard to how our kids are being educated, and the violence that has taken too many young lives in our community.   Mass incarceration has ripped the black family to its core and an entire industry has been built from the prison industrial complex.

The solutions must lie with us.  Taking charge of our individual and collective future requires a set of coordinated strategies that relate to how we build resources, protect our resources and target those resources.  Education must become a leading priority that goes beyond what our children learn in school everyday.  We must recommit ourselves to building and supporting black businesses, strengthening our families and sustaining our communities.

The future belongs to us.

Wealth, Education, Family and Community: A New Paradigm for Black America is a forum hosted by Min. Louis Farrakhan and Dr. Boyce Watkins. Min. Farrakhan and Dr. Watkins will discuss the need for a shift in the way people of color think about building wealth, pursuing education and challenging the obstacles to progress which exist in black America today.  The forum will be exciting, engaging and fulfilling, with the presentation of long-term strategies for African American socio-economic progress and sustainability.

The next step of the Civil Rights Movement must go beyond voting for the right politician.

 

When: Saturday, March 30, 2013, 5 PM CST, doors open at 4 PM
Where: The UIC Forum on the campus of The University of Illinois at Chicago – 725 W Roosevelt (on the corner of Halsted and Roosevelt)
Cost: Free and open to the public

Note: You must RSVP on this form in order to attend the event.
