Rodney North – Fair Trade America

Fair Trade America, based in Washington D.C. recently announced that Rodney North DS’84 has been appointed their new Director of Marketing and External Relations, beginning July 27. Fair Trade America “is a national non-profit organization committed to helping smallholder farmers and workers around the world to get a fair price for their products, access to international markets, and funds for community development…” Rodney has been actively involved in the fair trade movement for over twenty years, most notably as a member of Equal Exchange since 1996, where he worked in media relations and public advocacy (earning the moniker “The Answer Man” for his vast depth of knowledge about fair trade agriculture and economics.) Congratulations to Rodney!
