Women and Globalization: Fair Trade for Coffee Farmers Speaker: Alexa Marin Colindras SPEAKER AND TOPIC: Alexa Marin Colindras is an inspiring 31-year-old coffee farmer from Nueva Segovia, a region known for its high quality coffee. In 1994, Alexa became a member of the Prodecoop farmer cooperative, where she now serves as Treasurer and Vice President. The crisis in the coffee industry is devastating poor farmers in Nicaragua and across Latin America. Women are especially hard hit by forces of globalization, which leave women with little resources to feed their families and send their kids to school. Alexa inspires audiences by demonstrating the concrete impacts of local organizing for global justice through promoting Fair Trade coffee. Alexa will also be speaking about Berkeley’s Measure 0 and how it will affect small farmers around the world.
