The US is currently negotiating two new trade agreements that will directly affect many of the sustainable systems that we have worked to protect and preserve. Important decisions are being made by US trade negotiators with input from more than 600 corporate advisors – and a marked absence of input from voices of public interest. The impacts of these agreements could have far-reaching and devastating consequences.
There are groups of funders and NGOs, both in the US and internationally, that are working to prevent these trade negotiations from rolling back decades of regulatory advances. Join us for a funder-to-funder conversation to ask questions, learn about the philanthropic perspective, and discuss strategies and ideas that can lead towards broader coordination on this important effort.
