Friday Night, October 7! RSVP Here

Rock against the TPP graphic

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement – aka “NAFTA on Steroids” – is a corporate power grab that would be a disaster for the environment, workers’ rights, our health, and more. Which is why so many activists like you have worked so hard to defeat it!

But corporate lobbyists are at it again, trying to quietly rush the TPP through Congress this fall. We won’t let that happen! This time, some incredible musicians are drawing attention to the issue with a free series of concerts: the Rock Against the TPP tour.

But it doesn’t end there – we’ll be keeping the momentum going with a teach-in on the TPP on Saturday!


Friday Night, Rock Against the TPP in Boston!
