The third annual International Fair Trade Expo, Change the World . . . One life at a Time, will take place from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at Agner Hall, Lawrenceburg Fairgrounds, U.S. 50, across the street from Hollywood Casino entrance.

The expo, hosted by Community Fellowship Church, Lawrenceburg, will have an expanded amount of products being sold this year with over 16 vendor organizations representing artisans from 27 different countries.

A world of art awaits, showcasing fair trade products from around the globe. Shop for unique items including jewelry, purses and handbags, native handcrafts, scarves and accessories, decorative items, coffee and more. The products are created by artisans who are based in Central and Southeast Asia, Africa and Central America. 

Friday evening there will be live music, and Friday and Saturday there will be coffee and desserts to purchase with all benefits going to International Justice Mission, a human rights organization that secures justice for victims of slavery, exploitation and oppression. 

Make a difference! Help those who have been economically disadvantaged and/or previously enslaved. Because these artisans receive a fair wage for their work, they are able to improve their lives by providing basic needs for themselves and their families.

Artisan countries include Bangladesh, Cambodia, Cameroon, Chile, Dagestan, Ghana, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Kenya, Mali, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, Peru, Philippines, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Swaziland, Thailand, Togo, Uganda, USA, Vietnam, and Zambia.
