Oppose Fast Track!

Call Congress Now at (855)712-8441
to Oppose Fast Track


Did you watch President Obama’s State of the Union address? There was a lot to like, including initiatives for paid sick leave and free community college. But there’s one big thing we need to push back on right now: the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Last week, we told you about a petition asking Congress to block Fast Track, which allows massive trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership to be negotiated behind closed doors and tips the balance toward a deal that sells out U.S. workers in order to pad the wallets of corporate CEOs.

If we’re going to prevent another trade deal that empowers foreign corporations and skews benefits to the 1%, we need to ramp up the pressure. Today, we’re joining with allies across the movement for a national call-in day to stop Fast Track.

Click here to tell your member of the House of Representatives you oppose Fast Track, or dial 855-712-8441 and we’ll connect you.

Calling your member of Congress is one of the easiest and most effective ways to make your voice heard. With your help, our goal is to make thousands of calls to legislators across the country and let them know that the American people are watching.

We will not let them rubber stamp another secret, corporate-backed trade deal that sacrifices our jobs and wages for Wall Street profits.

Join the national day of action: Add your voice to the thousands calling Congress to say no to Fast Track and trade deals secretly written by and for the 1%.

This is not the end of the fight, but it is a major moment, and we need your help. Please call now and make sure your voice is heard.

In solidarity,
