Sarah KingStudent (Great Lakes Regional Fellow)DePaul University
Sarah King has spent the last five years dedicated to the fair trade movement. After exploring fair trade in Indianapolis, she decided to make her college choice based on fair trade universities. Social and economic justice for all became her personal slogan as she worked with Chicago Fair Trade, and Mata Traders. Her work at DePaul University as the President of their fair trade committee has brought new fair trade prospects onto the campus through fair trade products and policy. Fair trade integrated into her family, spread to her friends, and now takes the forefront of her personal and professional life. Sarah endeavors to include the promotion of equal pay and safe working conditions for all producers by partnering with community leaders, businesses, and organizations. Her passion for the mission has led to increasing knowledge in her community and awareness on campus.
