The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County is holding a screening of the documentary True Cost on Tuesday, December 20th. This documentary exploits the working conditions of garment workers overseas. With 97% of fast-fashion garments made overseas and 80 billion garments consumed every year, this situation has turned into not only an environmental issue but a human rights issue as well. Sara McKillop from UUFDC explains why the church decided to show the film.
The film is part of UUFDC’s monthly Movies That Matter series that examines a wide range of issues. This program is run by the congregation’s Social Reasonability Committee, and the members are prudent in their movie research and selection. Creating awareness of The True Cost supports UUFDC’s mission to pursue equality and justice for all people and to practice stewardship of the earth. The film will start promptly beginning at 4:30 pm running till 7:00 pm on Tuesday from the UUFDC in Ephraim.
