Stop the NAFTA Expansion to Peru -- Take Action Now!

Using the form below, or a personalized version, please send a letter to your senators.

In the congressional elections last November, Americans loudly rejected the Bush administration's more-of-the-same NAFTA expansion trade policy. Nonetheless, on November 8 the House of Representatives approved a NAFTA expansion to the South American country of Peru, over the protests and "NO" votes of a majority of the Democrats in that body. Now this Peru NAFTA expansion moves to the Senate for a vote.

The Peru NAFTA expansion is bad enough on its own. But if this deal passes easily, there are unfair trade deals with Panama, Colombia and South Korea that are lined up to follow in a slippery slope of NAFTA expansion.

Please use the form below to let your senators know that you want them to make sure there are no more Bush NAFTA expansion agreements, and instead you expect Congress to chart a NEW course for trade and globalization.

This form will send the letter to both of your Senators.

Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation

Together, two separate corporate entities called Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation, Inc., form Public Citizen. Both entities are part of the same overall organization, and this Web site refers to the two organizations collectively as Public Citizen.

Although the work of the two components overlaps, some activities are done by one component and not the other. The primary distinction is with respect to lobbying activity. Public Citizen, Inc., an IRS § 501(c)(4) entity, lobbies Congress to advance Public Citizen’s mission of protecting public health and safety, advancing government transparency, and urging corporate accountability. Public Citizen Foundation, however, is an IRS § 501(c)(3) organization. Accordingly, its ability to engage in lobbying is limited by federal law, but it may receive donations that are tax-deductible by the contributor. Public Citizen Inc. does most of the lobbying activity discussed on the Public Citizen Web site. Public Citizen Foundation performs most of the litigation and education activities discussed on the Web site.

You may make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., Public Citizen Foundation, or both. Contributions to both organizations are used to support our public interest work. However, each Public Citizen component will use only the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the activities it conducts as part of Public Citizen’s mission. Only gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible. Individuals who want to join Public Citizen should make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., which will not be tax deductible.
