Tim Robertson is director of the California Fair Trade Coalition, a grass-roots organization dedicated to improving trade policy by promoting economic justice, human rights, healthy communities, and a sound environment. In this capacity, he coordinates efforts of labor, environmental, family farm, peace, economic justice, faith and other groups around California to ensure that workers and the planet have a voice in trade. Through education and organizing, the CFTC pressures Congress and other elected officials to abandon the "free trade" model in favor of a more balanced approach to expanding trade.
