Rally for Fair Trade
Join ADA and thousands of activists this Wednesday, May 7th as we rally in front of the Capitol for Fair Trade. Together, we'll say saying no to "fast track" legislation that would speed the Trans-Pacific Partnership through Congress with little debate and zero opportunities for amendments.
When: Wednesday, May 7, 1:30 p.m. Where: Upper Senate Park, 200 New Jersey Ave., N.W. Washington, D.C.
Voters will head to the polls in the year’s first primaries with ADA involvement tomorrow. Indiana and Ohio will choose party standard bearers for offices up and down the ballot, including hopefuls endorsed by the local ADA chapters and even some candidates who are chapter members. In Indiana’s key 2nd Congressional district, this preliminary contest will crown a Democratic candidate to take on embattled incumbent U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski. Look for a full report the morning after in the Wednesday Campaign Wrap-Up.
