Queens Community Forum on the Trans-Pacific Partnership

w/ Nobel Prize-Winning Economist Joseph Stiglitz

Join us for a community meeting to learn about the dangers of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and how efforts to fast track damaging trade agreements can be stopped.

The event will feature Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz and will highlight how this trade agreement threatens our jobs, health, communities, and environment. Fortunately, Queens/Bronx Congressman Joseph Crowley can play a key role in stopping the fast-tracking of the TPP — if he hears from his constituents on this issue!
