TPP and Fast Track: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You!
Congress will soon vote on an international agreement that would allow corporate interests to override the laws enacted by our elected representatives in many important areas of our daily life. Unless we intervene, this will be done in secrecy under the provisions of yet another law now before Congress that would allow no meaningful opportunity for public input. It is not too late to prevent this but we must act now. Learn about this threat to democracy masquerading as a trade agreement, and learn what you can do to advert it.
Joan Levin, J.D., M.P.H. Will present this information and lead a discussion. Joan is a retired attorney who has spent most of her life working in the public interest in a variety of contexts. She now serves as Legislative Director of Illinois Right to Know GMO, an organization focused on labeling genetically engineered foods. She is presenting this program because if the Trans-Pacific Partnership becomes law under Fast Track, GMO labeling along with other informative food labeling might become one of the many casualties.
