Fair Trade Colleges and Universities Contest and Conference

David Funkhouser, on the left, is
long-time Fair Trade USA staffer, 
is helping organize the Chicago conference.
As a member of the national steering committee of Fair Trade Colleges and Universities, I'm gearing up for the national conference in Chicago, Oct 26-28, 2012.  The event is actually a joint endeavor between the campus movement and Fair Trade Towns.  For those committed to deepening community commitments to fair trade, this is a great opportunity to meet fellow organizers, sharpen skills, and have some fun.  There are travel stipends available for those who need some support getting to the event.  Don't be shy to apply.

To help build momentum and in celebration of Fair Trade month, FTCU held a video contest, and the first submission is one I am proud to be a part of.  Check the video out and if you think it makes a good case for fair trade, please like it.
