PDA San Francisco - Meeting and Public Forum!

“What Is the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and

Why Are People Saying All Those Terrible Things About It?”

“What Is the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and Why Are People Saying All Those Terrible Things About It?” is a public forum focusing on key elements of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the multi-national “free trade” agreement strongly supported by corporations, banks and powerful government officials. Negotiations to finalize and implement the deal are taking place behind closed doors: a select group of corporate advisors can see the text, while everyone else is excluded. The Forum will reveal how the TPP can affect the lives of millions of people and what can be done to stop it.

Victor Menotti, Executive Director, International Forum on Globalization (IFG); Writer and activist specializing in the impact of global¬ization on ecosystems

Progressive Democrats of America

Progressive Democrats of America was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and our country. We seek to build a party and government controlled by citizens, not corporate elites-with policies that serve the broad public interest, not just private interests. As a grassroots PAC operating inside the Democratic Party, and outside in movements for peace and justice, PDA played a key role in the stunning electoral victories of November 2006 and 2008. Our inside/outside strategy is guided by the belief that a lasting majority will require a revitalized Democratic Party built on firm progressive principles.

For over two decades, the party declined as its leadership listened more to the voices of corporations than those of Americans. PDA strives to rebuild the Democratic Party from the bottom up-from every congressional district to statewide party structures to the corridors of power in Washington, where we work arm in arm with the Congressional Progressive Caucus. In just a couple of years PDA and its allies have shaken up the political status-quo on issues from ending the Iraq war, voter rights, protecting Social Security, a full employment economy, national healthcare and economic justice.
