Join a Local Campaign or Start Your Own

Fair Trade Towns (FTT) and Fair Trade Colleges & Universities (FTCU) are going strong, but could always use dedicated people like you. We can help you find a local campaign where your unique voice can be heard or you can start your own chapter with help from our National Organizers.

Celebrate Fair Trade Month Throughout October!

Fair Trade Month is the perfect opportunity for your campaign to support Fair Trade practices. Just choose one day, week or even the entire month of October to share the message and values of Fair Trade by getting involved with local organizations, clubs and classrooms. By talking to local leaders, tabling at events or presenting Fair Trade values within your community, you will be encouraging your network to use and serve Fair Trade products.

Oh, did we mention the winner gets a $500 gift card to Patagonia? Ready, Set, Go!

Make Fair Trade Month Count!
