Right now, the fate of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is ours to shape. The Obama administration and corporate supporters of the trade agreement are gearing up to force the TPP through in a lame-duck session of Congress after the election.
That’s why dozens of organizations are working together to make Wednesday, September 14 a nationwide TPP Call-In Day — to push more of our representatives in Congress to oppose the TPP before the election.
On Wednesday, join us by calling 1-888-659-7351. After you’re connected to your representative’s office, tell whoever answers that you are opposed to the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Here’s a sample script to use when making the call:
— Hi there, my name is [NAME] and as a [STATE] resident, I am calling to urge you to vote against the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
— I’ve had enough of bad trade deals that trade U.S. jobs to the lowest bidder and increase the power of multinational corporations and Wall Street over our democracy.
— I urge you to stand up to this corporate power grab and vote NO on the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
It’s crucial that our Members of Congress hear from us loud and clear that they must oppose TPP during the lame duck session. Call 1-888-659-7351!
