The text of the TPP was released three weeks ago. This means that the clock is ticking for Congressional action to vote it up or down. The Wellstone Club is committed to working to defeat the TPP. In the greater Bay Area, this means communicating with our Congressional delegation: giving support those who have opposed the TPP in the past and urging those who have supported the TPP to consider the final document and change their minds.

Xiomara Castro of Citizens’ Trade Campaign and Suzanne York of the Sierra Club have been deeply involved in the anti-TPP campaign. They will share their analytical and organizing insights with us.

Also on the agenda:
The Wellstone Club Economic Justice Program
