Since we can’t gather in person, we’ve taken the Fair Trade Fair online!
We look forward to the Fair Trade Fair every year and it was important to us to figure out how to hold this space, in some capacity. For over 20 years now, we have gathered with other socially conscious community members to put on the Fair Trade Fair. This Fair is an opportunity for Fair Trade vendors to talk about their work, the importance of fair trade, and show off their beautiful, high quality fair trade goods. The Fair Trade Fair has always been an opportunity to gather with this wonderful community, share stories, and have a good time.
This toolkit was designed to spark conversation and growth personally, professionally, organizationally, or community wide. The toolkit can be used fully or in parts.
Objectives of the Toolkit
• To inspire deep and substantial conversation about Indigenous people, histories, decolonization and reconciliation
• To inspire transformation in your organization or community
• To promote shared knowledge between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous People
• To encourage building a strong and an honest relationship with local Nations
• To create decolonized Board spaces where Indigenous youth can co-lead organizations;
