From March 17th to 21st, members of Congress will be home in their districts on recess. It’s the perfect time to keep up the pressure, letting representatives know that we need them to oppose ANY form of Fast Track — no matter what.
Here are some ideas for continuing to make your voices heard:
- Give your member’s office a call to see whether they’re holding any public events, and make sure you’re there to tell the truth about Fast Track and the TPP. Hand out flyers to attendees, ask a question about where your member stands, and snap some photos for follow-up (send those our way at [email protected]).
- Request a meeting with your representative or your representative’s staff. If they’ve taken a stand against the current Fast Track bill, let them know how much you appreciate it — and urge them to publicly commit to voting no on any future versions, too.
- Submit a letter to the editor in your local newspaper mentioning your member’s name directly.
- Organize an online day of action focused on your rep, asking friends and other community members to join. Check out this page from our friends at Expose the TPP for more information and ideas on using social media to our advantage.
