Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement Symposium

Tuesday, July 9 * 8:45am to Noon
Sierra Club, 50 F Street, NW, Eighth Floor, Washington, DC

Please join us for a public symposium on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, also known as the Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA). 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. We’ll discuss some of the potential impacts of this latest pact as negotiations begin that week in Washington, DC.

Opening Panel: What’s at Stake
Virginia Robnett, Coalition for Sensible Safeguards (moderator)
Lori Wallach, Public Citizen (TAFTA context)
Natacha Cingotti, Friends of the Earth Europe (European perspectives)

Environment and Climate Panel
Carroll Muffett, Center for International Environmental Law (moderator)
Ilana Solomon, Sierra Club (climate and energy, investor-state)
William Waren, Friends of the Earth U.S. (downward harmonization and chemical regulations)

Food Panel
Kathy Ozer, National Family Farm Coalition (moderator)
Alexis Baden-Mayer, Organic Consumer Association (GMOs)
Karen Hansen-Kuhn, Institute for Trade & Agriculture Policy (emerging technologies)
