Stand with Fair Trade Music

The Fair Trade Music movement is dedicated to building an ethical, sustainable and transparent music ecosystem that is equitable for everyone in the music value chain. It furthers these principles by giving consumers and creators the information they need to make ethical choices when producing, distributing, streaming or purchasing music.

More people and organizations every day are getting in touch and asking how they can join the other supporters in standing up for these principals.

By working together, we can share the stories of music creators that are struggling to make a fair living from the success of their work. We can raise awareness of the issues standing in their way and increase global understanding via education and research resources. We can provide a roadmap of ethical choices for authors, industry organizations and music lovers.
