Our petition & message to Senators Collins and King: Vote for Fair Trade!
Dear Senators Collins and Senator King,
We are opposed to giving President Obama Fast Track Authority that would undermine the ability of Congress to have a voice in trade agreements. We urge you to vote against Fast Track and to make the TPP negotiating process transparent and accountable to the people. (Poster art by:ARRT) Animated ARRT
