The Reform Movement has a history of standing up for social justice around the world, fighting to end global poverty, human rights abuses, and environmental destruction. The Union for Reform Judaism’s Commission on Social Action passed a resolution to promote the consumption of fair trade coffee in 2002and the Union has passed multiple resolutions to curb environmental destruction, and to tackle global poverty. We ask that all congregations, Union offices, and individuals strive to purchase and serve fair trade coffee and provide educational materials on the benefits of this practice. The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism has committed to purchasing Fair Trade Coffee for office use, and is currently working to offer Fair Trade Coffee exclusively at our future events.
