Bay Area Fair Trade Coalition Springtime Coordination Meeting
Hooray for springtime – the season of awakenings and new beginnings! In the spirit of rejuvenation, it’s time again for us to reunite the Bay Area team as we kick our San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley campaigns into high gear. Join us for the next Bay Area Fair Trade Coalition meeting, Wednesday, April 21st as we roll out some fresh, new ideas for growing awareness of Fair Trade in the Bay Area.
World Fair Trade Day is fast approaching and we have a wide variety of events in the works including a Fair Trade Wine Night at San Francisco bars, a partnership with the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition to convert all of the coffee for Bike to Work Day to Fair Trade Certified and producer tours from Latin America and Ghana. We’ve also got some exciting new developments to report in the city’s efforts to implement Fair Trade and organic procurement.
Elsewhere in the Bay, the Fair Trade Berkeley campaign is making great strides in its efforts to declare Berkeley a Fair Trade Town and will be appearing before the Berkeley City Council, Tuesday, April 27th. Come find out more about how you can get involved in the city wide actions we’ve got planned for San Francisco and discuss ways our group can celebrate and support this crucial turning point in the campaign to declare Berkeley a Fair Trade Town.
Please come and offer your creativity and support!
