Great News for a Fair Trade Atlanta Focus Neighborhood

ClarkstonFair Trade Atlanta recently named Clarkston, a small suburb, our current focus area. Clarkston is an amazing place that is known for the majority refugee population. The New York Times called it “the most diverse square mile in America”. Recently, we have teamed up with several local businesses and the mayor in order to help Clarkston meet campaign requirements.
