Send a Letter to the Editor Demanding Coverage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and How to Fix It
Let Your Local Paper Know What You Expect Them to Cover
With negotiators aiming to complete the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) as quickly as possible in 2013, it’s crucial that we raise public awareness. Please send a letter to the editor to your local newspaper to demand coverage of the TPP deal that is swiftly becoming “NAFTA-on-steroids” with the world. In the short term, simply getting a letter run on TPP will help raise awareness of this stealthy pact and also how we can help fix this broken “free trade” model using U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown’s 21st Century Trade Agreements Act.
It’s easy to do.
You can use one of the sample letters (PDF) and personalize it, or write your own original letter. And you can use the handy form below to send your letter directly to your local papers without having to look up more information.

Thank you for helping — together, we’ll get a spotlight shown on TPP!
