Tell your representative to take a stand against closed door negotiations in the Trans-Pacific Partnership and sign on to the Miller-DeLauro letter today.
Here’s what to do:
1. Call 1-888-291-9824 to be connected to the Capitol switchboard.
2. Ask to be connected with your representative.
3. When a staff member answers the phone, you can use this script: Hi, my name is ______ and I am a constituent of Representative _______. I would like for him to be a cosponsor on the Miller-DeLauro letter and support openness and transparency in the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement.
I called Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA 9th) and urged transparency. I also DEMANDED that we STOP all "free trade" schemes. I said the American people hate NAFTA, and we need to prevent further NAFTA-like More....schemes, incluuding the TPP.

A very polite gentleman took my call who assured me he'd deliver the message to Chris Gibson, my representative.

There needs to be transparency in the trans-pacific partnership negotiations. No more Naftas.
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.
