Nathan George
Convicted of the urgency of practical action on behalf of the global poor and the necessity of engaging the church in America, Nathan and Catherine George founded a fair trade company, Trade as One. Based in Fremont, CA, the company sells products made by victims of human trafficking, HIV / AIDS and the poorest of the poor. It sees job creation among the global poor as a missional issue. Trade as One believes that the church can speak prophetically to the marketplace and lead by example in showing how conscious purchasing can be a powerful force for systemic change. Nathan has worked in the software industry for twenty years. Three years ago he moved from the UK with his wife and three boys to Santa Cruz California to start Trade as One.
