Across N. America, advocates are inspiring around 100,000 people to participate in Fair Trade events from May 6-20. Please join us in supporting the largest Fair Trade event in N. America each year, and in celebrating the “Best in Fair Trade” Award winners. With over 1,000,000 producers around the world already benefiting from Fair Trade, it’s time to raise our voices and vote with our dollars until all trade is fair! This year, individuals as well as organizations will host hundreds of events to celebrate Fair Trade.
We invite you to host WFTD events during May 6-20 – including Fair Trade festivals, fashion shows, speeches, food and drink tastings, film showings, sports games, neighborhood crawls, spa nights and concerts and much more – to promote Fair Trade and campaign for trade justice together with farmers and artisans around the world.
