Please make every effort to join the call. New organizers, interested parties, and established Fair Trade Towns are all encouraged to join in. We will be focusing this call on best practices for sharing all of the great Fair Trade Month activities going on all over the country. In addition, Beth Peery of the Fair Trade Resource Network will be sharing a fantastic program that she is coordinating to link youth in our communities to youth in communities abroad who are participating in the Fair Trade movement.

Join us tomorrow to learn all about this great program and to connect with all of our fellow organizers!

Courtney Lang, National Organizer | Fair Trade Campaigns

Courtney Lang brings over 5 years of community organizing to Fair Trade Towns USA, building both the Local Food and Fair Trade networks in Vermont. As Local Food Coordinator with City Market/Onion River Cooperative, Courtney worked with local producers, institutions and consumers to grow the local food system and organize a strategic model for community engagement through farm tours, workshops, and local food challenges. Like many in the Fair Trade industry, Courtney was inspired to take action in Fair Trade when she witnessed child-labor first hand in Costa Rica. As a founding member of Fair Trade Burlington, she has worked with economic development organizations, businesses, and consumers to build awareness of Fair Trade among Vermonters. She also worked with a Fair Trade USA licensee, Vermont Coffee Company, as Friend Ambassador where she united the story of Fair Trade to every purchase of coffee.
