Share your tariff impact story

The tariffs imposed by the U.S. on our trading partners have prompted approximately $75 billion worth of retaliatory tariffs on American products. Now the administration is preparing or considering hundreds of billions of dollars in additional tariffs - including on autos and auto parts - all of which will invite more retaliation against American businesses. The L.A. Area Chamber is partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and business organizations all over the country to urge the Trump administration not to move forward. If your business has been impacted already by tariffs, please share your story HERE.
