Challenging the FTAA, NAFTA & the WTO:
A Community Research Toolkit

September 2003

Job loss and environmental injustice are a daily reality for many of our communities. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), first implemented in 1994, has been a major force in creating a climate for companies to enter and exit communities with little concern for job loss and the toxic legacy left in their wake.

This guide has been created to provide individuals and organizations resources for locating community-specific information that reflects the ways corporate-led globalization affects us at the local level.

A project of the DataCenter's Economic Justice Program.
