Consumer Consciousness

At the risk of going slightly beyond what this blog was intended for, ISWC is posting this interesting link about our roles as consumers and big name companies within the ever growing global economy. This is not hoping on a plane and doing work abroad....but it IS taking action and creating awareness.

This was brought up in a discussion about Human Trafficking in the 251 Violence Against Women course today. 

Where did your shirt come from? 
Who picked the tomatoes in your sandwich? 
Who assembled your laptop? 
What child made your shoes? 

Apologies for just throwing these links out there, definitely more to come surrounding these issues- definitely international social work issues.
