The Campaign, now coordinated by Billy Linstead Goldsmith (r), started in the fall of 2007.
Its objectives are essentially to bring together businesses, civic and educational institutions, faith-based and community organizations, and individuals throughout the United States

Full information about the campaign and a list of Fair Trade Town declarations and ongoing campaigns is here.
