Demand That Congress Reject Fast Track for the Trans-Pacific Partnership

UPDATE: After a temporary victory, fast track is headed back to the Senate. The powerful multinational corporations that want the TPP are undoubtedly continuing to keep up the pressure. If we're going to beat them, we need to do the same.

Some members of Congress want to grant President Obama "fast track" authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a secretive trade deal that advocates have called “NAFTA on steroids.” After twenty years of NAFTA, it's clear what these trade agreements do: they push jobs overseas, weaken food and consumer safety standards, circumvent environmental laws, restrict Internet freedom and roll back financial protections. 

Fast track authority would allow the President to sign the TPP before Congress has voted to approve it, and then railroad the deal through Congress in only 90 days with limited debate and no amendments allowed. 

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Wall Street and the nation’s biggest corporations love these deals, but the American people overwhelmingly—and on a bipartisan basis—oppose them.

Write to your senators today and demand that they reject fast track for the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Then, to amplify your voice, use this tool to call their offices.
