Agitate, Educate, and Organize ~OO~
Let’s Roll! The debate over “fast track” legislation for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other pending trade deals is coming to a head right now. Several Members of Congress from the Pacific Northwest remain undecided on this critical issue and need to hear from you!
To voice opposition against the disastrous impacts fast track would have on the Pacific Northwest’s economy, environment and public health, the Washington Fair Trade Coalition, the Oregon Fair Trade Campaign, Sierra Club and partners from the labor, environmental, public health, human rights, and other movements are getting on a bus called the “Blue-Green Machine” for two action-packed days of rallies, press events and briefings that need your support.
