Human Thread Campaign Presentation at St. Norbert Abbey

April 4, 2017

Pope Francis wrote in Laudato Si:

Purchasing is always a moral—and not simply an economic—act.


Human Thread CampaignBasic elements of our daily lives like clothes, cell phones, chocolates, and coffee provide us comfort, even as they are the fruit of the exploitation of millions of persons in dispersed global supply chains.

On April 5, 2017, the Norbertine Community of St. Norbert Abbey will host a presentation by Christopher Cox, campaign manager of the Human Thread Campaign, a program of Seventh Generation Interfaith.

Cox seeks to foster Catholics’ awareness that promotes solidarity between consumers of clothing and the people who produce them in order to create a more just economy and sustainable communities. Socially responsible investing and consumer choice are essential: do you know who made your clothes? This presentation for members of local religious communities will focus on actions that can be taken as a consumer and as an investor.
