Keep Taking Action for Economic Equality

Our theme Think Global, Act Local, Get Equal is coming to an end, but there are still plenty of ways to take action:

  • If you haven’t had the chance to sign one of our letters asking Cadbury to stop using tax-avoidance schemes, you can download the template letter and send it directly.
  • And you can support companies that do pay their fair share by looking out for the Fair Tax Mark.  There’s an event all about this in Birmingham on Monday 19th March 6:30-8:30.
  • Meanwhile support the local economy here in Brum by choosing independent businesses where you can: the Independent Birmingham website is great place to start discovering local gems.
  • And thinking globally, Fairtrade is great way to make sure farmers and producers in the developing world get a fair deal: pop into Peace Hub for Fairtrade Fortnight and beyond for Fairtrade drinks & snacks.
  • If you’re interested in exploring the issue of economic equality further, ‘Building the New Economy’ is a handy set of booklets to get you started, created by Quaker Peace & Social Witness. There are hard-copies available at the Hub.

As always you can pop into Peace Hub for a chat about any of these topics, and browse our Resource Library for handy materials.

Next up, our theme is Peaceful Brum: peace begins with all of us! Drop by during March & April 2018 to find out more.
