Derail the Trans-Pacific Partnership

No backroom deals for the 1%

Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “free trade” agreement talks resume this September in Leesburg, Virginia. Once again, negotiations will take place with the public locked out and the texts held in tight secrecy, meanwhile over 600 corporate advisors have regular access to the negotiating texts. On the table is a veritable smorgasbord of extreme new corporate rights to slam the 99%. Tell Ron Kirk to release the text of the TPP draft texts to ensure that public health and access to life-saving medicines aren’t on the bargaining table.

Sign the TPP Petition below


Dear U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk:

Americans deserve the right to know what U.S. trade negotiators are proposing in our name.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “free trade” agreement is likely to impact jobs, wages, agriculture, migration, the environment, access to medicine, consumer safety, banking regulations, indigenous rights, Internet freedom, government procurement and more. A pact this far-reaching should be negotiated in the most transparent and participatory manner possible.

Please publicly release all the TPP proposals now.

Sincerely,

Optional Member Code

Learn More about the distinction between these two components of Public Citizen.


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.
