San Pedro NAFTA Public Hearing, 10.27.2017

San Pedro NAFTA Public Hearing copy.jpg

Trade deals, like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), have consequences related to environmental protections, food and safety labeling, job elimination and job quality for people across North America. With the renegotiation of NAFTA imminent, it is critical that we take action to make our voices heard. Donald Trump and the United States Trade Representative’s Office are currently rushing through the 4th round of NAFTA renegotiation in secret, pushing a corporate-first deal that does not support working communities or the environment. 

 

Take action and join us at a special public hearing featuring several prominent voices from local organizations. You will hear from immigration, labor, environmental and social justice leaders as they discuss the impact NAFTA has had and you will learn what we need to do to hold government accountable at this critical moment. We will also open up space for public discussion and the concerns of local community members with this deal. 

 

When:

Friday, October 27th 

7:00 - 8:30 PM

 

Where:

Port of Los Angeles Boys and Girls Club

100 W 5th St, San Pedro, CA 90731
