Call Now: Ask Your Representative to Cosponsor the TRADE Act in 2009!
The Trade Reform, Accountability, Development and Employment (TRADE) Act, sponsored by fair trade champions Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio, pictured at right) and Rep. Mike Michaud (D-Maine), was first introduced last year and eventually gained 80 House and Senate cosponsors, including your representative! This landmark legislation sets forth in concrete, detailed terms a progressive vision for good trade agreements in the future and criteria to renegotiate existing failed pacts like NAFTA and the WTO.
The TRADE Act will be reintroduced for 2009 very soon. We now need all the representatives that cosponsored this bill last year to do so again. Call your member of Congress now, thank them for supporting trade reform last year, and ask them to do it again by cosponsoring the 2009 TRADE Act! Here's how to do it:
After you've called, tell us what the staff person said! Use the form below to let us know that you made a call about the TRADE Act.

This is critical to our ability to build support for an agenda of change in trade and globalization policy.
