About the Speaker

As an international volunteer in Guatemala, Normand Roy helped a group

He's also lived and worked with coffee growers in Mexico and Brazil. 

Équiterre is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting ecological, 
socially just choices. Despite efforts to date, fair-trade coffee is still not 
widely known, so this 20-city tour has been organized. It aims to foster 
public awareness of the impact of consumer choices on the life of 
peasant farmers of the South, using the example of the coffee trade, 
and to present fair trade as an instrument for change.
