Fair Trade Minneapolis
501c3 tax exempt since November 2021, we’re empowering people to choose Fair Trade Products so global farmers and artisans earn a fair and sustainable living. Fair Trade (coffee & tea, chocolate, sugar, apparel, gift items, etc.) empowers farmers and workers to eliminate poverty, and protects the environment where Fair Trade products are grown or made.
We encourage the Minneapolis City Council to designate the City of Minneapolis as a Fair Trade Town, and to purchase local and/or Fair Trade products. Please “like” our Facebook page and join our Zoom meetings on scheduled Monday evenings at 7:30 pm. After COVID, we plan to have even more in-person fun!
