Speaking Out for Good-Paying Jobs & a Healthy Environment by Saying NO to “Fast Track”
Presented by Oregon Fair Trade Campaign and sponsored by Portland Jobs with Justice
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 and their partners from the labor, environmental, public health and human rights 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.
