50 F St NW
Washington, D.C., District Of Columbia
NOTE: TIMES ARE LISTED IN EASTERN (EDT)
Please join us for a live webcast of the civil society symposium on the Trans Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA), also known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). TAFTA threatens to build on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and similar trade deals focused on removing “trade irritants” like food safety standards and environmental protections without regard the costs to public health, local food systems and our environments. The symposium will discuss some of the potential impacts of this latest pact as negotiations begin that week in Washington, DC.

Environment Panel [9:45 a.m. – 10:50 a.m. Eastern]
Food Panel [10:55 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Eastern]
