Molly's Booklist!

Hey guys!

We just got back from our tour through Texas where we spent some time talking with different groups about the garment industry, human trafficking, & everything in between. We had a couple of requests for a list of books where folks can learn more about these issues-- so I made a list of all my favorites! These books have been part of my personal journey of understanding injustice within our global trading system, as well as stories of people of faith who have lived courageously in the tension of immense corruption and hope for a better world.

These are listed in no particular order; READ EM ALL! And enjoy them so much!
