Two trade agreements are set to threaten years of work supporting family farmers, good food and building a more just food system in favor of corporate profits. As negotiations continue in secret and the President seeks to secure Fast Track authority to avoid working with Congress, it is essential that those who care about our food system weigh in. What do those interested in fighting for a better food and farm system need to know to influence the debate? Join us on Twitter for #FoodTradeFail, a discussion with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) and a host of other experts and organizations to get your questions answered.

  • What are the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)?
  • What is Fast Track?
  • Why are these trade agreements a threat to local food, food safety and our democracy?
  • How can you get involved?

Trade should serve people, not corporations. Join us to learn more, get involved and help prevent the #FoodTradeFail.

#FoodTradeFail Wednesday, December 10 3:00–4:30 p.m. EST / 2:00–3:30 p.m. CST
