The Trans-Pacific Partnership:
A Major Threat to Global Climate
Welcome to the website of Global Justice for Animals and the Environment (GJAE). GJAE is a grassroots organization that works in opposition to NAFTA-style free trade agreements that corporations use to attack our environmental laws. Currently, we are campaigning to stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a secretly negotiated trade deal that threatens to expand production and export of rainforest destroying biofuels, fracked liquid natural gas, and GHG intensive foods like farmed shrimp and pastured beef.
The objective of this page is to share information on the TPP and what YOU can do to stop it!
We invite you to watch our short video on the TPP's threat to global climate and the environment.
YOU CAN HELP STOP THE TPP!

We can still stop TPP! The agreement is still being negotiated and Congress has yet to vote on it. After the November election, pro-TPP members of Congress are expected to introduce "Fast Track" legislation to help rush TPP through Congress. Under Fast Track, members of Congress will be prohibited from introducing amendments to TPP that would strengthen environmental rules and prevent the agreement from exacerbating climate change. Urge your Senators and Representatives to vote against ANY Fast Track trade legislation, even if it is repackaged with a new name like "Smart Track" or hidden within a larger spending bill. Any bill containing Fast Track trade authority language MUST be opposed! You can find out who represents you in Congress and how to contact them here.
