BAFTC is setting its sights on Oakland and Berkeley as the next Fair Trade Towns.
After our successful Bay Area Fair Trade meeting this past month, we are growing and gaining momentum with three groups now organizing under the BAFTC banner, Fair Trade San Francisco, Fair Trade Oakland and Fair Trade Berkeley.
Each group is undertaking separate discussions on how to set new goals for their campaigns, grow their lists and organize for Fair Trade Month this October. Come be a part of the discussion as we lay the groundwork for a vibrant and sustained movement for Fair Trade here in the Bay Area and campaigns to declare Oakland and Berkeley a Fair Trade Town.
