The NOFA Interstate Council has a committee on Domestic Fair Trade
The DFT Committtee has as its mission to serve as an incubator acting across NOFA-nation, encouraging the development of domestic fair trade principles as enumerated by the DFTA (of which NOFA is a founding member). The DFT Committee is a sub-committee of NOFA’s Interstate Council Policy Committee; it confers bi-monthly, more frequently when necessary.
Open to members of all state chapters.
Each year the committee establishes a list of activities that will support its mission and then proceeds accordingly to accomplish them. The list for 2018 has yet to be composed but will include attending the NOFA spring retreat, March 27 – 29, participating in bi-monthly calls, organizing a summer meeting at the conference, and working with chapters to encourage them to include domestic fair trade topics in winter conferences.
NOFA members concerned with social justice and the DFT committee are discussing expanding the mission to include social justice, racism, equity and food access.
