Trade Justice Advocate Working with Interfaith Working Group on Trade and Investment
Gina Chamberlain has created an interactive presentation which allows participants to engage in trade justice topics from different points of view, sharing stories, assessing trade policy impact on their different communities, and discussing possible amendments to ameliorate harmful effects. In the process participants learn how trade agreements work and ways they can engage to work for change.

“Most of the TPP does not address traditional trade concerns but instead deals with many other economic issues including environmental standards, food safety, financial regulations, protections for workers and consumers, patents on pharmaceuticals, and energy policy. Under the guise of a “free trade” agreement,treaty negotiators are writing and re-writing the rules of the national and international economies, behind closed doors and in a very undemocratic process.”
