Wednesday’s a big day at Ten Thousand Villages, the nonprofit Pasadena store stocked with fair-trade goods from around the world. It will be launching its new partnership with The Women’s Room, a refuge for homeless and lonely women. The women have been making colorful sachets filled with local lavender, and the store will be selling them (as long as they last) for a mere $3. To kick off this new venture and to honor International Women’s Day, they’re having a free, informal reception at the store.
Later that evening, Pasadena Councilmember Jacque Robinson and guest Harmony Dust will give a presentation called “What You Can Do to Stop Human Trafficking in Pasadena.” We’re not sure if that means what Pasadena people can do, or if it means that there’s actual human trafficking going on in our midst—you’ll have to attend to find out.
