World Fair Trade Day
(WFTD), the 2nd Saturday in May each year, is the largest Fair
Trade event of the year in North America, and events take place
May 4-19 in 2013. Around 100,000 people attend hundreds of celebrations
to promote Fair Trade and campaign for trade justice together
with farmers & artisans. WFTD itself falls on May 11.
Every year, individuals
as well as organizations host nearly 1000 events in the U.S.
& Canada, such as festivals, fashion shows, speeches, food
and drink tastings, film showings, sports games, neighborhood
crawls, and concerts, as part of WFTD. The more people participate
in World Fair Trade Day, the more difference we can make. With
over 1,000,000 producers around the world already benefiting
from Fair Trade, its time to raise our voices and vote
with our dollars until all trade is fair! We gather North American
citizens, businesspeople, faith advocates, students, consumers
and activists to celebrate the people who grow our food and produce
