Fair Trade Music is a grassroots campaign of Portland musicians, for all musicians.
Through education and advocacy, the campaign works to make a better music scene, better partnerships between clubs and musicans, and to extend the same basic rights to musicians as those of other workers.
Recognizing and promoting venues that treat musicians properly is important: here's a list of venues across the US that have signed on.
If you're involved with the Portland music scene, we want to hear from you. What are your challenges and victories? What do you love about the scene here? What would you change? [contact form]
Fair Trade Music is supported by the Musicians' Union Local 99 and the American Federation of Musicians -- the Musicians' Union. Union membership is not required.
