Domestic Fair Trade Association (DFTA) Annual conference

Location: The Hyatt Regency Atlanta: 265 Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, GA 30303

 

 

When there is so much wrong with our food system–corporate control and monopolization, abundance of unhealthy food and unsustainable production practices, unfair pricing for farmers, low wages and dangerous conditions for food and farm workers–it can be hard to believe that any other way of agricultural production is possible.

 

 

This year, the Domestic Fair Trade Association is hosting a conference with the theme Linking Up: Creating Fair and Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains in order to remind us that there are alternatives to our current food system and to inspire us to truly believe that these alternatives can become the norm. Experts will gather to share concrete strategies and best practices for how all the sectors in our food system can work together to develop a vision for agricultural production that is based on health, sustainability, and justice.

 

 

This year’s conference is titled Linking Up: Creating Fair and Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains. We’re really excited to spend time at the conference with Paula Daniels, co-founder and chair of the Center for Good Food Purchasing, as well as Shirley Sherrod, executive director of the Southwest Georgia Project. All who have a passion for social justice in sustainable agriculture are warmly invited! This is a unique opportunity for individuals and organizations committed to domestic fair trade principles, and we hope you can be there!
