Return Your Campain Status Surveys This Month
Surveys Are Due by the End of February!
We are off to a good start to 2010 so far and our first big project is to develop an extensive resource library for organizers, full of new tools and materials. To this end, we want to make sure we are addressing the biggest areas of need first, so we are asking all of our campaigns to complete this survey and return it by the end of the month. Once we have all of the info in one place we will be able to update things much more smoothly.
We encourage you to fill these out with your steering committees’ feedback so that we can get an in-depth glimpse at the great work going on in your community and learn how we can most effectively support it. Please return the survey via email or regular mail by the end of the month and thank you for your great work!
Fair Trade Towns USA Status Survey
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.
