You’re one of our top activists on trade and today will be a big day. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to speak up for working people and take a stand to stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Even though the TPP was signed last week by the U.S. Trade Representative and the other countries involved, we still can insist that our lawmakers oppose ratification. Today and tomorrow, working men and women from around the country are calling their representatives to do exactly that.

Click here or dial 855-856-7545 now and urge your representative to oppose the TPP.

You’ve been with us on this for a while now, so you already know the talking points: The TPP was written in secret—without considering workers’ interests. It will ship our jobs offshore, let corporations suppress wages even more, and give corporate CEOs and private interest groups even more power over our communities.

We’ve built great momentum, and many of our elected leaders have heard us and continue to stand with us. Working families have written letters, signed petitions, left testimonial comments and even introduced and passed more than 100 resolutions in local municipalities—all in opposition to the TPP.

We’re making progress and will not give up now. Let’s remind Congress we’re still watching and will hold them accountable.

Join other working women and men Feb. 8–9 and stand up for our jobs and wages. Click here or dial 855-856-7545 and urge your representative to oppose the TPP.

In Solidarity,

Celeste

There is one solution to skyrocketing inequality that most of the TV talking heads love to ignore: Unions! It is no surprise.
Without unions, big companies like Walmart or Amazon can cut benefits, allow unsafe working conditions, slash wages, and pocket the massive profits.
Well, I am not afraid to talk about how unions are essential and I am relying on you to get the word out. Please watch and share now:
More economic growth, higher wages, shared prosperity all by strengthening unions. 50 or 60 years ago, it was considered obvious; today, folks are afraid to talk about it. That is what decades of right-wing propaganda will do.
The first step is to spread the word by sharing this message right now, because MoveOn will be campaigning for the idea that gets the most traction in our Big Picture series.
This video is the latest in the â€Å“Big Picture: Ten Ideas to Save the Economyâ€Â¯ series I am working on with MoveOn. And MoveOn has committed to campaigning on the ideas that get the most traction. So if you believe in fair pay for a hard days work, you wont want to skip watching and sharing this video.
Thanks for all you do.
