Last January saw the 20th anniversary of the landmark North American Free Trade Agreement, and its influence on American manufacturing, workforce, agriculture, and other sectors has been vast. This panel discussion — featuring former Congressman David Bonior — will give an overview of NAFTA, its impacts, and how this monumental legislation has influenced Washington’s transpacific trade politics. The panel will also outline Washington’s current economy and trade politics, and offer a glimpse at the future of free trade.
Moderated by Seattle Globalist’s Signe Predmore. Panelists: * David Bonior * Lynne Dodson, Secretary Treasurer of the Washington State Labor Council AFL-CIO * Mark McDermott * Robin Everett, Associate Regional Representative at the Sierra Club * Mary Anne Mercer, Health Alliance International *
