The True Cost

March 10, 2016

3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center

This film pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider; how does fashion impact the people who make it and the world we live in? This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically.

Facilitated discussion by Stephanie Ochoa of Chicago Fair Trade, the largest fair trade coalition in the USA, comprised of a dedicated base of member businesses, educational institutions, congregations, non-profit organizations, and individual activists.

Mata Traders will be joining us, support local-fair trade businesses! #whomadetheirclothes
