Jennifer Miller has been involved in the Fair Trade movement since her undergraduate years at Eastern Mennonite University. During a semester study abroad, she met artisans struggling to support their families in Egypt and the West Bank. Their stories forced her to consider how her decisions as a consumer impacted the lives of others and led her to become an advocate for Fair Trade. Jennifer has served on the boards of directors of Ten Thousand Villages Pittsburgh and Ten Thousand Villages Baltimore; she is currently working with Ten Thousand Villages State College. Jennifer holds a M.A. in History with a focus in Women’s and Gender Studies from North Carolina State University and a Ph.D. in History from West Virginia University.
