TAKE ACTION: Supreme Court rules in favor of DREAMers. Next step: Senate must give them permanent legal status. Although the Supreme Court ruling is positive, it is not the end game. Unless Congress legalizes the status of these immigrants, they could be placed into deportation proceedings, tearing families apart. Call your US senators 202 224 3121. Tell them that "I hope the senator will stand up for immigrant families and urge the leadership in the Senate to introduce the Dream and Promise Act and move it along in committee. Will you let me know what the senator is doing to protect DREAMers and TPS holders?”
This petition will be submitted to Congressional representatives to demand they do everything in their power to stop the funding and implementation of these agreements.

Alternative Trade Organizations (such as Equal Exchange) have foundational influence in the broader fair trade movement but have become isolated from even their most natural allies including coops, citizen movements, community economic organizations, unions, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The monthly Food Action Forum meetings allow all of us to connect, build community, and have space to push our campaigns forward and engage in actions out in our local communities. In today’s overwhelmingly digital world we want to find ways to create meaningful and deep connections with this community, connections that are two-way, connections that are active, not passive. Join us as we work together to build a democratic brand that connects small farmers in the Global South to consumers in the Global North.

Fair trade is about more than just paying a fair wage. It means that trading partnerships are based on reciprocal benefits and mutual respect. Each year, IRTF provides tens of thousands of dollars in much needed income to fair trade cooperatives in Mexico, Central America, and Colombia. Help us build this solidarity economy together. Get your fair trade coffee, chocolate, baking cocoa, and tea from IRTF this spring! Pick-up or home delivery!
