The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a secret deal in the works between the US and 11 Pacific Rim countries. It stands to impact 40% of the global economy, and threatens the health of our food system, our communities, our environment, and our local economies- and is being negotiated behind closed doors in collaboration with multinational corporations.
As early as next week, the House of Representatives will be voting on Fast Track-- the legislation that would allow the TPP to move through Congress and straight to the President, without any option for debate or public input. Currently, there is not a majority to pass Fast Track in the House- and we need to keep it that way! One of the most important figures who could change the vote in the House is Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, who has not yet publicly opposed Fast Track for the TPP.
As a generation of young people who care about our food system and our future, we are calling on Pelosi to say NO to Fast Track and NO to the TPP.
This Thunderclap is part of a National Call-In Day on June 3rd, urging our representatives to vote no on Fast Track.
