*The Sunlight Foundation asks that you join us in our fight to shed light
on the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade negotiations and bring transparency
to all future trade negotiations. The Trans-Pacific Partnership
<http://sunlightfoundation.com/blog/2013/11/14/recent-developments-show-desire-for-trade-talk-transparency/>
is a binding international agreement that could have far-reaching
implications. Twelve Pacific Rim countries participated in the most recent
round of negotiations, which took place this August in Brunei, and several
others have expressed interest in joining. Despite the need for public
scrutiny and participation in these important negotiations, they have
happened almost entirely in secret. This must change. In the attached
letter, we urge the leaders of the involved countries to complete
negotiations over the Trans-Pacific Partnership in public view and commit
to full transparency in all future international trade negotiations. We
encourage you to join us in our fight for transparency and sign the
enclosed letter. To do so, we ask that you fill out this short form
<https://docs.google.com/a/sunlightfoundation.com/forms/d/1r-Jgt9LM55bIGIUjx5cFnSXSovddAmaiLUcfmNnfnwU/viewform>
by the end of your work day on Monday, November 18th. You can see who has
already signed on here
<https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AoQuErjcV2a0dGVuRjg0ckYza2NqYkR6YnpwbU1jc2c&usp=sharing>!
Thank you for your time and support. Best, Julia Keseru Sunlight Foundation
