Billy Linstead Goldsmith came to Fair Trade Campaigns from an eight year career in the grassroots environmental movement. He recruited, trained and developed hundreds of grassroots organizers and facilitated campaigns on national, statewide, and local campaigns. He has mobilized fence-line communities, organized public hearings and other local actions to hold polluters accountable. Upon traveling with his wife, Rachel to Venezuela, Billy was inspired to focus his career on international justice and has embraced the opportunity to contribute to the Fair Trade movement. In his time at Fair Trade Campaigns the movement has grown from a handful of communities organizing for Fair Trade to a national movement including over 300 communities, college and university campuses, faith groups and schools.
