The Alliance believes that to achieve our vision of the future, we need to build broad and deep social movements. We can’t do this work alone. We therefore have co-founded and play leadership roles in a number of national formations.

The HEAL (Health Environment Agriculture and Labor) Alliance brings together the various sectors of food and agriculture—from farmers and farm workers, food service and production workers—with agricultural policy experts and community organizers and activists. The Alliance is a co-founder of HEAL and serves on its steering committee.


The Domestic Fair Trade Association holds up social justice principles for trade in the U.S. and Canada, focusing particularly on the agricultural and food systems. The FCWA is a member in the NGO sector. Other membership sectors are farmworker groups, manufacturers/processors, retail coops, and farmers.
