As a comprehensive platform for growing awareness, availability, and commitment to Fair Trade in the US, Fair Trade Towns provides the opportunity to build community in your town, as well as connect your community to those in the developing world.
A Fair Trade house party is a great way to get your friends and family involved in a warm and intimate setting. The house party model has been an effective organizing tool for decades and is perfect for sharing the stories of Fair Trade communities and the tastes of Fair Trade products. A house party doesn’t have to be in a house, and it doesn’t even have to be a traditional party – anything goes!
Students have always been at the forefront of the Fair Trade movement. Whether it’s advocating on campus to convert their dining services or educating their peers through classroom discussions, the fair trade community on college campuses is vital to the success of our movement. Large institutional accounts drive enormous volumes of sales for Fair Trade companies and in turn the farmers that grow the food we enjoy every day.
Communities of faith were among the first supporters of Fair Trade in the U.S., and their involvement continues to grow. Today, Fair Trade is a concrete and powerful way for people of faith to take their values to the marketplace and make a real difference in the lives of farming families around the world. Thousands of congregations across the country are serving and promoting Fair Trade Certified(TM) products.
