Norman Fair Trade will be sharing an information booth with the ONE campaign's OU student chapter at the upcoming Groovefest on Sunday, September 28.
Groovefest began in 1986 as a musical gathering of Norman locals and has evolved into a forum for human rights awareness and community building. The University of Oklahoma student chapter of Amnesty International became active at Groovefest events and their support has been a valuable asset. Most importantly, Groovefest has always been a community effort and the countless passionate individuals which have volunteered over the years make Groovefest a success. Other local and student organizations have also done their part, including Our Earth, GreenCorn, and the Oklahoma Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. Every spring and fall, Norman residents and surrounding communities come together to celebrate our freedoms with music and art, but most importantly to raise awareness of Human Rights issues both domestic and international. So come out to the park; sample local cuisine, browse the work of local artisans, enjoy the music of local musicians, and learn something about Human Rights.
