Congress is pushing legislation right now that would "Fast Track" the Trans-Pacific Partnership -- a secretive agreement negotiated behind closed doors by government bureaucrats and more than 600 corporate lobbyists. It threatens everything you care about: democracy, jobs, the environment, and the Internet.
Enter your phone number below. You'll get a call from us and we'll connect you to your reps.
Hello, I'm calling to urge my representative to oppose Fast Track for the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement. Congress needs time to debate and amend trade agreements that affect all of us. Fast Tracking the TPP is undemocratic, and I expect my lawmakers to oppose it. I'll be watching this issue closely in 2014.
You can press * at any time to hang up and call the next representative.

Publicity and Participation Materials
The Spring Campaign to Stop Fast Track is just next week! As temperatures outside finally warm up, we’ll be turning up the heat on House Democrats who still have not come out against Fast Track, and mainstream media outlets that are still ignoring this important issue.
During the week of April 21st, President Obama will be in Asia working to finalize the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). You can bet that he won’t be mentioning that without a Fast Track, the promises he makes to extract these ‘concessions” are not reliable.
Meanwhile, U.S. Members of Congress will be in their districts schmoozing with donors and community leaders, their minds on mid-term elections. That is why the Spring Campaign to Stop Fast Track will amp up pressure on the House Dems who have not come out against Fast Track, move mainstream media to cover Fast Track and the TPP, and remind the other TPP countries of the growing opposition to Fast Track.
But we need your help to make this campaign a success. Below is a list of all the things you can do and the materials you need to make a difference during the Spring Campaign to Stop Fast Track:

Subject: JOIN US: Save the World. Stop Fast Track.
Do you want to join forces with us to save the world? Well, here is your chance to be a hero!
This week, President Obama is traveling to Asia to finalize the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “free trade” agreement. He will do everything in his power to convince Japan and Malaysia to drop their objections to the parts of the TPP that would make medications more expensive, give foreign corporations more power, and roll back financial regulations.
You can bet that the President won’t be mentioning that if Congress doesn’t pass a Fast Track bill, he can’t guarantee any of the promises he makes to the Japanese and Malaysian leaders. That is why it is up to you to make sure that the world knows the real story.
While the President is in Asia this week putting the pressure on Japan and Malaysia to make concessions on the TPP, corporate donors are in the districts putting the pressure on U.S. Members of Congress to support Fast Track.
Thanks to your activism, the majority of House Democrats have come out publicly in opposition to Fast Track. There are, however, a few members who still have not taken a position and are in danger of being swayed by corporate campaign contributions. Make sure your voice speaks louder than money.
If we all stand together, our power will be greater than Captain America, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Spiderman combined.
And of course, with great power comes great responsibility…
Save the world. Stop Fast Track.
In a word, everyone. Democrats, Republicans, tech companies, unions, libertarians, environmentalists, and Internet freedom advocates all oppose Fast Tracking the TPP. It's common sense: decisions that affect everyone shouldn't be made in secret without public input.
Below are blog posts and articles from many organizations who are rallying against Fast Track for the TPP. Read up, share, and get all the facts about what the Trans-Pacific Partnership means for you.
