Notre Dame de Namur University Fair Trade Campaign
Hello! We are a small private university located in Belmont, CA. Our school is very engaged in the promotion of social justice and we are always looking for ways to be involved. Our campaign is lead by students who are all very passionate in implementing social justice not only on campus but throughout our Belmont community. We partner with Students 4 Sustainability in order to get both of our groups more involved. We hope to become a designated Fair Trade University within the next year or two!
