Backbone Ally, Washington Fair Trade Coalition invites you to Stand Up For Democracy
Join WFTC for Tuesday’s Light Brigade Actions in Seattle and more.
Why Is this Week Important?
The elections are over, but the International Week of Action (Nov. 8-14) is just beginning.
We need your help to make sure Fast Track doesn’t get pushed through during the Lame Duck Legislative Session.Join groups across the nation calling for a new, accountable, and democratic process for negotiating trade agreements. Let’s send a message that Washingtonians want trade policy that holds up people and the planet, not just the corporate bottom line.
