National Coordinator, Fair Trade Campaigns at Fair Trade USA

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 organisers and facilitated campaigns on national, statewide, and local campaigns.
