Who is Fair Trade Campaigns?

Fair Trade Campaigns is a powerful grassroots movement mobilizing thousands of conscious consumers and Fair Trade advocates on campuses and communities across the USA.  Fair Trade Campaigns is part of a global effort to normalize Fair Trade as an institutional practice and consumer preference across 24 countries and on six continents.

Fair Trade Campaigns recognizes towns, colleges, universities, schools and congregations in the US for embedding Fair Trade practices and principles into policy, as well as the social and intellectual foundations of their communities.

Fair Trade Campaigns provide tools, resources and support events to launch and grow local Fair Trade Campaigns in your town, university, school or congregation.
