If the TPP Passes corporate control will be expanded beyond what we can even imagine. GMO labeling-internationally, internet privacy, medication integrity, jobs and more will be lost.

Now is the time to unite to stop TPP during the 127 days of lame duck.  

Here’s an update from Arthur Stamoulis.  Please, stopping the TPP is the most important work we can do at the moment.  Please, let’s not forget that.  Thanks so much. - emilianne

Also, StopTPP groups are uniting to have a Twitter Storm Sunday night 11/6 from 8-9 pm EST
From Arthur:
Hi everyone:
The White House has given every indication that they still plan to introduce the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in Congress next month during the Lame Duck session.  The corporations behind the TPP power grab understand that 2016 is their best shot of ever getting the pact approved, so, unfortunately, they’re going all-in on this and a mighty struggle will be upon us very soon.
The good news is that, if we each do our part, we can defeat this thing.  Here are some easy ways you can help...

Please Join the National Call-In Days Against the TPP

A broad coalition of online, labor, environmental, consumer and other groups in participating in the National Call-In Days Against the TPP from November 15 - 17.  Last month, nearly 100 groups joined together to generate tens of thousands of calls into Congress against the TPP.  With your help, we're going to top that effort the first week of the Lame Duck session.  We need you to please…

  • Sign up to participate in the Call-In Days by clicking here, and we’ll make sure you receive template email blasts, tollfree numbers, click-to-call tools and unbranded memes that will make you’re participation easy.  Everyone is asked to send at least one email out to their supporters about the TPP on whatever day of their choosing on November 15, 16 or 17. 
  • Sign up to participate in the Thunderclap about the Call-In Days here.  Thunderclap is an online tool through which you can authorize your Facebook and Twitter account to automatically post one message about the Call-In Days on November 15th.  If enough people sign up, we’ll reach millions of Americans through social media that day.  You can do this on behalf of your group and as an individual.  You just need to be on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr.

Other Ways to Make a Difference

GO TO DC!

Participate in a National Lobby Day Against the TPP in Washington, DC on Wednesday, November 30th.  If you can personally make it — or your organization can send even just one or two supporters — let’s coordinate!  While we can’t fund people’s travel, we may be able to identify home stays and carpooling options, and we’ll definitely keep you in the loop about a planned morning breakfast briefing, an afternoon press event and rally, and a free Rock Against the TPP concert with 1,500 of your new closest friends that evening.  Please let us know you’re interested by clicking here.

Can’t make it to DC?  No problem!  Have you checked in with your U.S. Representative about his or her TPP position recently?  This is perhaps the most important thing each of us can do right now.  Members of Congress are back home, in-district now through the election, and we need each and every one of them to commit to oppose the TPP.  Please either meet with them, call them or attend one of their public events and ask them: “Will you commit to oppose the TPP before the election?”  Please share any updates on your outreach and conversations you have with me, so that we can track each members’ position closely.

This whole thing could come down to just a handful of votes, so every conversation matters!

The TPP’s chances of passage this year are too close for comfort, but, by working together, I’m confident we can win.  The Call-In Days are one incredibly easy way to make a real contribution.

Many thanks,

Arthur Stamoulis, Executive Director
