Oppose NAFTA 2.0
Senator Dianne Feinstein
SF Office: (415) 393-0707
DC Office: (202) 224-3841
LA Office: (310) 914-7300
Fresno Office: (559) 485-7430
San Diego Office: (619) 231-9712
If you can't get through to one office, try another. There is no benefit to calling one office over another. Leaving a voicemail is as good as reaching a live person. Hate the phone? Resistbot is your friend.
Senator Kamala Harris
SF Office: (415) 981-9369
DC Office: (202) 224-3553
Sacramento Office: (916) 448-2787
LA Office: (213) 894-5000
San Diego Office: (619) 239-3884
Call the SF office first, but try the other offices if you can’t get through. If you can’t get a live person, leave a voicemail and also send a follow-up email written in your own words. Hate the phone? Resistbot is your friend.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi
SF Office: (415) 556-4862
DC Office: (202) 225-4965
Call the SF office first, but try the DC office if you can’t get through. If you get voicemail, hang up and try a few more times to talk to a real person. Don’t give up! Short direct messages are most effective. Hate the phone? Resistbot is your friend.

I urge you to oppose NAFTA 2.0 (USMCA) until it is renegotiated to:
Include strong, enforceable labor standards that raise wages, allow Mexican workers to form unions, and discourage corporations from exporting jobs so they can pay workers a pittance.
Include strong, enforceable environmental standards and rules that discourage corporations from exporting jobs dump toxic poison into the environment.
Eliminate the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) system that empowers corporations to attack health, environmental, and other laws enacted by democratically elected governments through secret, appointed tribunals of corporate lawyers.
Establish that net neutrality rules and privacy protections mandated by democratically elected governments are not subject to corporate overrule through the ISDS process.
Eliminate the proposed expansion of international corporate copyright and patent powers that directly threatens the public interest, including lengthy pharmaceutical monopolies that keep prescription drug prices artificially high.
In the years since the original NAFTA was implemented, hundreds of thousands of U.S. jobs have been outsourced to Mexico by companies taking advantage of workers who do not enjoy the fundamental human rights to form their own free and independent unions, engage in meaningful collective bargaining, be free from discrimination and forced labor, and work in safe and healthy workplaces.
Now Trump and his Republican accomplices have signed a new NAFTA agreement (NAFTA 2.0) that they call the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA). This agreement is now before both houses of Congress for ratification under "Fast Track" rules that prohibit all amendments and prevent a Senate filibuster.
While NAFTA 2.0 includes some modest improvements in some areas it still elevates corporate profits over the public good, worker's human rights, consumer interests, environmental protection, and the democratic rights of voters and their elected representatives to enact laws that corporations oppose.
