Social change agents here and abroad are waging a tough fight to stop the massive trade deals from becoming reality: the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), Trans-Atlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP), and Trade In Services Agreement (TISA). Activists around the world, including Move to Amend have been making a lot of noise about the egregious nature of the TPP for a long time -- its secret negotiations, the 600 corporations included in that secrecy, and its implications for the people’s sovereignty in the nations involved in this deal.
If the idea of a global corporate Constitution bothers you, then tune in for a discussion with Nancy Price from the Alliance for Democracy, as we talk about the "free trade" deals of the TPP, TTIP, and TISA--which would govern more than 70% of global trade--and how you can choose to live in a trade-free zone!
This week features lifetime activist and affiliate organizer for Move to Amend in Tuscaloosa, Jim Price, to talk with us about his experience as a Southern organizer for justice and how to approach grassroots organizing in "red states" like Alabama.
Jim Price has spent most of his adult life as an activist and organizer for justice in the southern United States. For twenty-six years, Jim served as a field representative, grassroots organizer, and lobbyist at the Sierra Club. He was a founder of the Club’s National Environmental Justice Grassroots Organizing Program through which he supported numerous local organizations representing low income white and nonwhite communities throughout the U.S. in their struggles. During the 1990s, Jim helped initiate the Sierra Club’s Corporate Accountability Project. He presented a popular presentation “Corporations and the Deterioration of Democracy” at over fifty venues. In the mid-90’s Jim became a Principal with the Program on Corporations, Law, and Democracy (POCLAD). He was also a founder of the Alliance for Democracy, served on its first Board of Directors, and helped found the Birmingham, Alabama Chapter. Jim’s Unitarian Universalist community has been a great support to him. The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Tuscaloosa’s Social Justice Team and Board of Trustees have both endorsed the Move to Amend amendment. Since retiring to Tuscaloosa, Alabama in 2012, Jim has been an active organizer in the Move to Amend – Tuscaloosa affiliate.

Black Lives Matter has been in the headlines since July for disrupting Democratic presidential campaign rallies through elevated bird-dogging techniques. It wasn’t the tactic that was so newsworthy, but rather the white liberal backlash to the chutzpah of the black women who took center stage.
In this edition of Move to Amend Reports, we hear from Black Lives Matter organizer and activist Tia Oso, the determined black woman who took the mic--and the corporate-owned news media--by storm at Netroots Nation in July, about how direct action has helped to make racial justice a central issue for the 2016 elections.

Organized laborers have played a pivotal role in shaping workplace conditions and protecting the rights of millions of working people the world over. It is also a key constituency who we want to understand and support the We the People Amendment. Move to Amend is reaching out to labor unions and Central Labor Councils this autumn to build connections and get endorsements from organized labor and we need you to join the campaign!
This week, we talk with Move to Amend’s Labor Caucus coordinator Mike Ferner and Outreach Director David Cobb about why we need organized labor and how we connect with labor councils and unions to join the movement to amend the Constitution.
