More Than 1,000 U.S. Civil Society Groups Demand That a People-Centered Agreement Come out of the NAFTA Talks

Civil society groups — us, and those in relationship with us — across the U.S.A. that have a shared vision for a replaced NAFTA and a list of demands regarding the nature of the agreement have released their letter to the U.S. government. There are more than 1,000 groups on the letter, and it’s a strong list — impressive collective power.

The letter is being used on Capitol Hill and in district offices all across the country.

The press release on this letter can be found here:

The letter itself can be found here:
