Fair Trade Music is a grassroots campaign of Portland musicians, for all musicians.
It's really simple. We ask musicians:
What do you celebrate about performing in clubs/venues here?
What could use improvement?
How can we work together to effect that change?
Recognizing and promoting venues that treat musicians properly is important: here's a list of venues across the US that have signed on. Musicians don't thrive unless venues thrive; this is a cooperative, constructive movement.

Fair Trade Music is an organization supported by the Musicians' Union Local 99 and the AFM, but it's for all musicians -- Union membership is not required.
