Please join us in supporting World Fair Trade Day and celebrating ways to empower marginalized producers. With over 1,000,000 farmers, workers and artisans 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, such as festivals, fashion shows, speeches, food and drink tastings, film showings, sports games, neighborhood crawls, and concerts to celebrate Fair Trade.

World Fair Trade Day is the largest Fair Trade event in North America each year. Help us invite friends, coworkers and neighbors to build awareness of Fair Trade and empower vulnerable producers! Fair Trade seeks dignity and hope for farmers and artisans who produce the items we consume and enjoy, a better future for our planet, and tastier, higher quality products for you. On Saturday, May 11, The Peace & Justice Center and FTBN will join over 100,000 people across the U.S. and around the world as we celebrate World Fair Trade Day. Supporters in more than 80 countries worldwide will pause to celebrate the meaning of Fair Trade.
