  2. 2. Introduction • An accomplished music producer and DJ, John “Jellybean” Benitez has served as the president of the Jellybean Music Group since 1981. Alongside his day-to-day professional pursuits, Jellybean Benitez maintains membership in the American Federation of Musicians (AFM). In its efforts to advance the careers of working musicians, the AFM oversees a variety of advocacy programs and activities. Through its Fair Trade Music Campaign, the organization helps protect the rights of freelance musicians who perform in small venues. Specifically, the campaign uses collective action and education to help these performers negotiate fair contracts and build positive business relationships with the owners of clubs, bars, and other venues.
  3. 3. Fair Trade Music Campaign • The Fair Trade Music Campaign is driven by local musicians who work together to help raise the standard of living for all musicians in their community. In Seattle, for example, the local Fair Trade Music Campaign has induced over 25 area clubs to sign a pledge supporting fair trade music principles. The campaign also led the city of Seattle to designate May 20th as Fair Trade Music Day.
