“Fair Trade, Tariffs & President Trump”
A Presentation by Steve Watrous
President of the United Nations Association of Greater Milwaukee
Free & Open to the Public
 
Saturday – May 12th, 2018 from 10 AM – 12 Noon
Redeemer Lutheran Church – 631 N. 19th St. (Rear Entrance) – Milwaukee, WI
 
Current U.S. trade policy is a hotter, but more confusing, topic than ever.  President Trump capitalized on the widespread discontent about pro-corporate trade policies, such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and that helped him win the White House.
 
The Fair Trade movement sees Trump’s tariffs and NAFTA renegotiation as positive steps surrounded by negative rhetoric.  Steve Watrous will discuss the broader policy issues, current negotiation details, and possible outcomes to this tumult.
 
Steve Watrous has worked on fair trade issues since NAFTA, including being former coordinator of the Wisconsin Fair Trade Campaign, as well as the founder and chair of the Milwaukee Fair Trade Coalition.  He has been active nationally with the Citizens Trade Campaign, Fair Trade Towns, and Sweat Free Communities.
 
Steve Watrous is a Sociology Professor at the Milwaukee Area Technical College, President of the United Nations Association – Greater Milwaukee Chapter, and delegate to the Milwaukee Area Labor Council.  He also works on peace, environmental, and Latin American solidarity issues.
