Instead of ordering from a commercial vendor, delegates at the congress received products from the Others Trade for Hope initiative, like tote bags and lanyards made by women from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Kenya, and Moldova. This initiative works to restore dignity, independence and hope. You can host your own home party!
