American trade policy should strengthen, not weaken, the health, environment, food sovereignty, working conditions, labor rights, and transparent, competitive market principles of this country and all countries.
WORC’ s Trade Bill of Rights outlines basic fair trade principles, including
- The right of countries to preserve family farms and promote global food security.
- Strong labor, environmental and public health standards.
- Fair and democratic negotiations processes that allow for public input by the very people affected by the agreements.
