Executive Director at Domestic Fair Trade Association
Neighborhood: Capitol Hill

Hi there! I am the Executive Director of the Domestic Fair Trade Association, a national coalition of farmworkers, farmers, retailers, processors, and NGOS. Our mission is to promote and protect the integrity of Domestic Fair Trade principles and practices through education, marketing, advocacy, and endorsement. The domestic fair trade movement draws on both the international fair trade movement and the organic movements to advocate for a more fair, equitable, and sustainable food and farming system. Our members practice and promote family scale farming, farmer-led initiatives such as farmer co-ops, just conditions for workers and organic agriculture. Check out our work at

Please ask me about: fair trade, farmworker rights, sustainable agriculture, food justice
