North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) negotiations are in progress between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
NAFTA is a comprehensive economic and trade agreement that provides free-trade between the three countries.
Since its implementation 23 years ago, agricultural exports to Canada and Mexico have totaled approximately $310 billion and increased by more than 300 percent from pre-NAFTA levels.
Combined, Mexico and Canada account for about one-third of U.S. agricultural exports.
Take action by Feb. 9 to tell U.S. agriculture and trade officials to continue negotiations and not withdrawal from NAFTA.
