NAFTA Field Hearings & Town Halls

Renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) formally begins this August.  The time to shape U.S. goals for the a NAFTA replacement is running short.
 .
After seeing so many pro-NAFTA corporate lobbyists invited to testify at the NAFTA  hearings held in Washington, DC, we decided to work with Members of Congress and others on a series of hearings and other events that would allow working people, family farmers, immigrants, small business owners, environmentalists and others to share their views on the local impacts of NAFTA and their visions for a fair NAFTA replacement deal that would benefit the majority of people across the United States and beyond.
 .
