Dear Members and Supporters,
Summer can have different meanings to the diverse set of stakeholders throughout the agricultural supply chain. For the DFTA, it means continuing our work to
bring together diverse businesses and organizations.
In the Spring
, we hosted a #FairTradeDay Festival in Brooklyn, NY with the NYC Fair Trade Coalition, including fair trade vendors, live music, and a panel discussion.
for anyone who missed it!
As summer officially begins, we'll continue to connect stakeholders and bring people together to work on issues related to domestic fair trade. See below for our upcoming
Fair Food Solstice Happy Hour in Minneapolis, our
Birthday Fun(d) Raiser in Brooklyn, and updates on
our conference in December. Stay engaged and join us at one of our events!

P.S. The 3rd Annual Northeast Gathering on Domestic Fair Trade hosted by NOFA will be on Friday, August 11th from 8:30am-12pm in Amherst, MA.
