People Tree, a fair trade fashion label based in London, just released their second Eco Edit digital magazine. This one focuses on life after the Rhana Plaza collapse. It's pretty bleak, but it's so important that we read firsthand accounts and see the faces of those affected. Sympathy is best drawn out of us by personal stories; if we feel we know someone, we're much more likely to care for them. More of this story-collecting would be good for the fair trade movement as long as it's done in a way that unifies rather than alienates, that makes us realize the other is just like us. No white savior tales, just collections of narratives translated plainly.
