I don't hear much noise from my fellow wine community members. Is everyone aware of what is going on? If not, here are some current articles to help sober you up! Everyone's livelihoods are threatened here. Please voice your concern to your local congressman. The more noise me make, the less likely it will go through. Let's permanently block this tariff now! Could impact 17,000 jobs, 2 Billion loss to our economy, millions of dollars generated from state taxes on wine sales, loss of consumer choice, cost-prohibitive pricing, and of course, a threat to free trade and our rights as citizens.
Write a letter to your congressmen and women today!
Hey! I saw you’re in San Diego and some past colleagues of mine were on street corners in SD yesterday with signs in a small protest against the tariffs.
Social media is inundated with Somms and the like raising awareness. For sure the more speaking up the better!
Official comments closed on the 13th. There are at least a few change.org petitions too. Nothings decided yet though!
