What is the Tri-national Coalition?

The Tri-national Coalition was initiated in 1993 in response to NAFTA, the tri-national trade agreement that included Canada, the US and Mexico. It has continued to work on issues related to the impact on the three countries around education and the impact of neo-liberal policies that are central to the global "trade" agreements.
