The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a massive new international trade pact being pushed by the U.S. government at the behest of transnational corporations. It would be the largest free trade agreement in U.S. history, covering approximately 40% of the global economy.

Find out more about how the TPP would affect you and your community and what actions you can take to make a difference at forums in Worthington and Willmar.

The Willmar forum will be Monday, July 29, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the AFSCME Council 5 office, 1305 1st Ave. S.
