Sweatshops & Justice: The Cost Of Fast Fashion
Every fall, as people are gearing up for the insanity of Christmas consumerism, we host a lecture around the fashion industry and it’s connection to injustice, environmental harm, and materialism. This year we host Maxine Bedat, the CEO of Zady, a new clothing company challenging the status quo. Maxine lays out the historical shift from citizen to consumer, and the problems it’s created, as well as solutions for a better kind of world. In a world where over a billion people work on the garment industry, and only 2% of them make a living wage, as the people of Jesus we want to tell an alternative story.
