Help Chicago Fair Trade Link Local Youth to Global Producers!

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Fair Earth works closely with Chicago Fair Trade, a non-profit working to increase support for fair trade in the Chicago metropolitan area through education, advocacy, and targeted consumer campaigns.

A vital part of Chicago Fair Trade’s work is educating local youth about fair trade. From fair trade soccer games to fair trade fashion shows, youth are excited to learn about the people who produce the items they purchase!

To keep this program going, Chicago Fair Trade needs your help! Help us continue to make global connections with youth through programming with schools and youth clubs.

See our campaign video and contribute today! YOU can make a difference in the lives of youth here in Chicagoland and around the world.
