Letter to Congress: No Colombia FTA

The Obama Administration has announced that it wants to push the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) through Congress before August.

Human rights, labor, environmental, and faith-based organizations and activists around the country are stepping up their efforts to stop this trade agreement. Today, over 400 groups in the U.S. and Colombia—including the PC(USA) and the PPF—sent a letter opposing the FTA to congress. But we need your help in getting the word out.
