Call to Californians:
Stand Up Against the Trans-Pacific Partnership
Day of Action
On February 4, 2016, President Obama will be permitted by Fast Track authority to sign the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). A signing ceremony will take place that day in New Zealand (February 3rd in California).
As you would expect from a deal negotiated behind closed doors with hundreds of corporate advisors, while the public and the press were shut out, the TPP would have detrimental impacts on jobs, wages, environmental sustainability, public health and human rights.
Following the signing, Congress will still have to ratify the TPP. The Obama administration is expected to send it to Congress as soon as it anticipates having enough votes to pass it. We can make sure that never happens. Tell Congress to oppose the TPP. Show your support at one of the events listed below and sign the petition telling your representative that the TPP hurts California!

Please join us to stop the TPP. Bring signs, noise makers, banners and your presence. This will be a peaceful action to draw attention to all the negative impacts this so-called trade deal. We need our People Powered Movement to defeat the TPP and make sure our legislators know that they must vote “No” when the time comes.
