Carleen Pickard, Executive Director, Global Exchange
Jesse Colorado Swanhuyser, Chair of the Sierra Club's Committee on Int'l Trade, Human Rights, and the Environment
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is poised to become the largest Free Trade Agreement in U.S. history, with profound negative consequences for social, environmental and economic justice, as well as basic human rights throughout the world.

Learn what it’s all about, who’s behind it and how we can work together for Fair Trade, justice and environmental sustainability.
