This November marks 15 years since the historic WTO protests in Seattle that changed the discourse around trade, and we are proud to be carrying on that struggle for the well-being of workers, farmers, community members, and people everywhere.

Join us for our annual Fair Trade Breakfast and Fundraiser for the Washington Fair Trade Coalition Education Fund, and help us reach out to Washingtonians in more parts of the state and in the languages of our diverse communities. We need to expand our efforts to daylight the negative impacts of the current trade model and to build an ever-stronger voice for a new, just model.

We are honored to host keynote speakers Celeste Drake, Trade and Globalization Policy Specialist for the AFL-CIO, and Jill Mangaliman, Executive Director from Got Green, two powerful forces in organizing from the global to the local.

Doors open at 7:30 in the morning to mingle and enjoy the breakfast buffet. Program starts at 8 AM, and we’re out by 9! This is a great opportunity to do something in the moment to support trade justice work, to experience the wisdoms of Celeste and Jill, and to connect with activists working on the environment, human rights, labor rights, public health, access to medicines, food security, climate change, immigration, internet freedom — the multitude of issues that intersect with trade policy.
