The Ohio Fair Trade Expo (taking place at John Carroll University) is almost a month away!  You’re probably getting quite excited by now (we are, at least) and, if that is the case, here is one more thing to peak your interest.  Wednesday, September 29th there will be an Ohio Fair Trade Expo Pre Party at the Ben & Jerry’s across from campus (that’s 20650 North Park Blvd.) to which YOU are cordially invited.
Snag some free samples of all of Ben & Jerry’s fair trade ice creams and check out a “mini-market” of fair trade vendors.  Or make some friends and sign up for the Vermonster Challenge (that’s the monstrosity you see above — sign up to take the challenge here). Then stick around for a raffle (that’s more code for free stuff)!!
This is sure to be a really fun event and I sincerely hope to see you all there!!

New (and Great) Changes to the JCU Equal Employment Opportunity Policy

Below is a message from former JUSTICE co-president (and all-around genie) Andy Trares:

Hello Everyone! 

Hope Summer is going well for everyone! 

I’m emailing to let you all know that the JCU Equal Employment Opportunity Policy has officially been changed, the statement now reads “John Carroll University does not discriminate based on race, age, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, ethnic or national origin, disability, Vietnam veteran status or special disabled veteran status.” 

If you would like to see it yourself, the link is http://www.jcu.edu/fas/hr/policies.htm, click on the equal employment opportunity policy link and and its in the second paragraph. Thank you to everyone who helped participated in the protest this spring, our hard work paid off and we were able to change the policy and help make John Carroll a more inclusive place. 

For those of you still on campus, keep an eye out for more projects this year to help make Carroll better for everyone. 

Congrats,

Andy Trares
