Show Rep it is important to address TPP – 4/5/16 in Durham

Join a coalition of over 40 organizations at Congressman Butterfield’s ‘State of the District Address’ to emphasize how harmful Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is to women and the 99%.  
Our coalition of over 40 organizations (including NC NOW) has been trying to meet with Congressman BK Butterfield about TPP .  So far, he has not agreed to meet on TPP with the coalition, nor has he met with people who live in his district.  We’re taking this opportunity to show how important TPP is to so many people and organizations.

Meet at Durham Tech in Durham at 5:30 in front of the Educational Resources Center  for an event that goes from 6-7p.m.

This is not a protest.  People can bring signs but signs won’t be a focus. There will “No on TPP” stickers.  
 
Email president at raleighnow.org if you can go.  Renee Maas at rmaas at fwwatch.org is organizing carpooling, in case you need that.
