Facilitated Discussion

Held 3rd Thursdays each month, January - May 2021, 7-8 p.m.

The True Cost (92 min.)

This is a story about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. This documentary film pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing? (2015)

Discussion Facilitator

Dr. Soonkwan Hong, Associate Professor of Marketing, College of Business, Michigan Technological University
