Each year, members of the Catholic Relief Services community travel around the nation to speak about the work they do in their respective countries and how the different programs of CRS work with their communities. This year, Cecilia Suarez, Head of Office for Catholic Relief Services Mexico, was the guest speaker for the CRS Rice Bowl Encounter Tour in the Northeast Mid-Atlantic Region.
We recently took a few moments to check in with Amelie at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette about their campus fair trade efforts. We hope that their example will be an inspiration and a guide to other campuses looking to more fully integrate fair and ethical trade.
Thank you for all you've done to raise your voices for and with our global community to have a positive impact on the world. The letters you've signed and the stories you've shared will have a lasting legacy on the justice issues that are most pressing across the globe today.
