Speaker

Description

Every product comes from somewhere and has an impact on some place. Targeting corporations, and key corporate constituents such as investors and customers, is a powerful way to protect these places, and the people and wildlife that inhabit them. Learn how one Bellingham-based organization harnesses the power and influence of Fortune 500 companies for good, and holds companies accountable for the sourcing of their products, while simultaneously supporting companies that are interested and willing to move toward better environmental practices. We’ll highlight the environmental impact of cups of a little coffee company you may have heard of - and the campaign to get it to do the right thing.

About the Lecturer: Jim Ace has been working with Stand Earth, formerly known as Forest Ethics, since 2012. He has been committed to environmental and social justice since 1990, and has worked with organizations like Rainforest action Network, Greenpeace, and the Rukus Society and the Alliance for Democracy.
