Action of the Week Demand Fair Trade From Your State Government!

Each year, institutions, from municipal and state governments to universities, hospitals and school districts, spend billions of dollars purchasing commodities, like coffee, tea and sugar. An estimated $8 billion dollars was spent on institutional coffee purchases alone in 2009. Institutional purchasing can leverage large volumes and significant purchasing power to engage and empower ordinary people to create a just global economy.

Tell your governor that you support Fair Trade and that your state should too!
