Boston Fair Trade Coalition
26 West St.
The Boston/MA Fair Trade Coalition aims to be a diverse, coordinated network of community organizations, student groups, and individuals that are dedicated to supporting and promoting fair trade in the greater Boston area. The goal of the Boston Fair Trade Coalition is to support local, healthy, sustainable communities by promoting Fair Trade principles through community outreach efforts, and to address the gross injustices of a world trade system that is proving disastrous for small farmers, artisans and local environments worldwide. The Coalition will support this goal by enabling its members to access concrete action tools to increase consumer awareness on fair trade issues, deepening the dialogue surrounding Fair Trade, social justice and sustainable development, and playing an active role in the larger Fair Trade movement. Oxfam America will support the Coalition by acting as facilitator, fostering discussion and providing materials and support to its members.
