Wednesdays, 3/22, 4/5, & 4/19: National People's Agenda Conference Call
Years of educating, organizing and mobilizing by activists from across the country and around the world built a political culture of opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and its sister agreements, the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trade-in-Services Agreement (TiSA). They are stalled for now. A peopleís movement of movements had the power to overcome the agenda of giant trans-national corporations. It is time to build off of that win and educate, organize and mobilize around a Peopleís Agenda for trade that protects people and the planet, and more.

Thursday, 3/23: Webinar: What Does Good Trade Policy Look Like?
w/ Emmelia Talarico, Regional Field Organizer for Public Citizenís Global Trade Watch
With the Trump Administrationís cancellation of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and plans to renegotiate NAFTA, it is important that the public, and especially the faith community, take a lead role in shaping the conversation about what good trade policy looks like with our elected officials. Our discussion will focus on helping groups formulate a statement and set up meetings with their legislators in order to proactively shape the conversation on trade before policy must be voted on.

Sunday, 4/2: Webinar: The Climate Cost of Free Trade
w/ Ben Lilliston, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy
Get ready for Earth Day and the People's Climate March by learning how free trade agreements exacerbate climate change and undermine efforts to prevent it! The Trump Administration has promised to re-negotiate existing trade deals, like the North American Free Trade Agreement, change the way the U.S. interacts with the World Trade Organization, and start to negotiate bi-lateral (one-on-one) trade deals with other countries. This new era of trade negotiations will have direct impacts on greenhouse gas emissions and how we respond to climate change. We will look at how the Trump Administration views trade and climate change, and outline key upcoming moments for advocacy.
