I mentioned in an earlier post that I was part of a @CatholicRelief delegation that met with staff members of the U.S. Senators and Representatives to discuss H.R. 3226/S. 1968, which is the Business Supply Chain Transparency on Trafficking and Slavery Act. This pending legislation requires publicly traded companies with revenues over $100 million to include in their SEC reporting statements that indicate they are working to ensure their supply chain is free from human trafficking and slavery. Not all companies wait until legislation is passed to take right and moral actions. One such company is Patagonia. Watch the video to better understand the problem, a bit about Fair Trade and the good work Patagonia is doing. If you don’t have 12 minutes, watch the short 2 minute version here: patagonia – Fair and Ethical Trade.
