Domestic Fair Trade Association

Once Again is an active participant in the Domestic Fair Trade Association (DFTA).  The DFTA works together with organizations representing farmers, farm-workers, retail stores, manufacturers and the like, to engage in addressing justice issues surrounding food and consumer goods.  Specifically, the Domestic Fair Trade movement is working to address issues in rural communities supporting family-scale farming and farmer-led initiatives and co-ops.  The goal is to address sustainable agriculture in North America as well as protect human rights.  The DFTA has important goals relating to helping protect family-run farms from big agribusiness, protecting indigenous people’s rights and also marginalized people’s rights.
