What You Can Do to Stop the U.S.-Colombia FTA

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

All across the country activists are coming together to stop the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement (FTA).  Check out these resources we’ve compiled on opposing the FTA, and get involved!

Whether you only have enough time to send an email or you want to visit your member of congress in person, this is the moment to make your voice heard!

Senators will be in their districts this upcoming week, May 30 to June 5. Then your member in the House of Representatives will be home the following week, June 6 to June 12. So it’s the perfect time for you to get in touch if you haven’t already!
If you’re feeling ambitious, schedule a meeting. Just call their local offices to set it up.  (You can find the contact information at www.house.gov and www.senate.gov.) Or you can also attend a town hall meeting during these recesses to tell them what you think and ask them tough questions about the Colombia FTA.

And you don’t have to do it alone. Click here to check out a list of organizers in cities across the country, who are planning lobby meetings and demonstrations that you could join. Some groups are holding planning calls as early as today, so don’t delay!

If you want to send a message right now, click here to email both your senators and your representative.

We’ve got lots of tricks up our sleeves and we’re going to keep the pressure up until they give in. If you’re online savvy, help us build the cause on facebook by “liking” and sharing the new page we created with our coalition partners “Stop the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement.”

Above all, don’t forget to report back when you take action. If you need any resources or help planning, email Vanessa at vkritzer@lawg.org.

Thank you so much for all your hard work. Only together can we stop this FTA!
