What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Fair Trade Action: In response to the suffering caused by corporate globalization, grassroots organizations are joining together across borders in the struggle for social, economic, and environmental justice. In Montana, CAJA is building a coalition of union members, family farmers, environmentalists, and social justice activists to promote fair trade and oppose corporate-dominated ?free trade.? The Bush administration planned to implement the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) on January 1 this year. CAFTA is another free trade agreement that gives multi-national corporations access to cheap labor and resources at the expense of workers, small farmers, and the environment. The increased import of subsidized industrial agricultural crops from the U.S. will displace even more peasant farmers from their lands in Central America, as well as put family famers in the U.S. out of work. The primary options for farmers in Central America will be to move to the urban slums and seek employment in the maquiladora sweatshops or to make the dangerous trek to the United States in search of a job that will enable them to send money back to their families. CAJA is starting with solutions right here in Montana by working to implement local fair trade resolutions and ethical purchasing policies. Stop the Violence, Coke in Colombia: In Colombia, Coke has collaborated with the paramilitaries to kill seven union leaders in an effort to destroy the workers? union. In solidarity with the union, CAJA is supporting an international boycott of all Coca-Cola products. The goal is to force Coca-Cola to stop the paramilitary violence and to treat its workers with dignity and respect, paying them livable wages and benefits. CAJA works locally with students to terminate the exclusive seven-year contract the University of Montana has with Coca-Cola. The students are demanding that UM suspend the exclusive contract pending an independent investigation into the human rights abuses. Jubilee Montana Network: CAJA is a member of the Jubilee Montana Network working in partnership with the Jubilee Network and our Southern partners to call for 100% debt cancellation. We work to bring this issue to light locally, and to demand a just policy gloablly. For more information go to www.jubileeusa.org.
