Fair Trade Towns, USA is a national campaign to build a strong, broad-based consumer demand for Fair Trade products and businesses. It is a community-based organizing campaign designed to provide the organizing resources to local activists to get their town or city officially declared a “Fair Trade Town”.
The aim is for this designation to provide a platform for long-term campaign activity to raise awareness and demand for Fair Trade, thereby facilitating life-changing benefits for impoverished farmers and workers across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
