WFTC is the Legacy of the 1999 WTO Shut-down in Seattle
- Labor, environmental, faith, farmer, student and social justice groups jointly mobilized into a powerful movement for trade justice
- Civil society established the right to be involved in setting trade policy, previously the monopoly of investors and business interests
What we believe
We believe trade between countries plays a critical role in helping to create a just, prosperous, and sustainable world economy. We also believe trade policy should treat all sectors of society fairly, and that benefits of trade should be shared widely across communities and countries.
The Washington Fair Trade Coalition (WFTC) is a coalition of over 60 Washington labor, faith, environmental, farmer, and social justice groups that are committed to creating a fair, balanced, and sustainable global trading system.
