How can you help clean the air? Take action!

 Sometimes, being a good mom means being an engaged citizen. Tell your political representatives that we share the air.

 

IF YOU ONLY HAVE TIME TO DO ONE THING: TELL YOUR CONGRESSPERSON: NOBODY VOTED TO MAKE AMERICA DIRTY AGAIN

Trump’s proposed budget for FY 2018 will slash the EPA budget by more than 31%, gutting bedrock pollution protection programs and hobbling enforcement of basic clean air standards. This budget is a naked attempt to put power in the hands of polluters. As parents, we are outraged at this proposal. Please tell your Congressperson: This budget proposal is making me and my family sick.

TAKE ACTION NOW!

TELL EPA: PROTECT OUR KIDS FROM METHANE POLLUTION

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a two year delay on vital air pollution safeguards that protect our kids from dangerous methane and toxic, carcinogenic air pollutants like benzene. This reckless decision puts our kids in danger, and EPA knows it—the agency even admitted it. The official notice from the EPA about the delay says: “EPA believes that the environmental health or safety risk addressed by this action may have a disproportionate effect on children.” This is unacceptable to moms and dads everywhere—there is no amount of time that it’s okay for our kids to be exposed to air pollution from the oil and gas industry. Tell EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt: It’s your job to protect the health of our children, not polluters.

TELL CONGRESS: AMERICA MUST LEAD ON CLIMATE

President Trump’s decision to leave the Paris Climate Agreement threatens our children’s health and future. Climate change is real, it’s happening now, and the nations of the world have joined together to take decisive global action. America’s withdrawal from this landmark agreement means that we will fall behind on climate action and clean energy. The effects could be catastrophic—for our world, our health, our economy, and especially for the future of American families. Tell your congressmen and -women that we need climate action now, for the sake of our children’s health and future.

TELL SCOTT PRUITT: DENYING THE PROBLEM DOESN’T MAKE IT GO AWAY

The Environmental Protection Agency sets national standards for air pollution and implements solutions to health-harming pollution. But this agency—American families’ first defense against pollution and a critical guardian of our public health—is under attack. President Trump has proposed a 31% cut to the agency’s budget, and EPA administrator Scott Pruitt questions the very science supporting climate action and federal clean air standards. Denying a problem doesn’t make it go away. Climate change is happening, and air pollution harms our children’s lungs, no matter what Scott Pruitt says. As parents, we must speak up about how important EPA standards are to our families’ health and future. Tell EPA Administrator Pruitt: Hands off our climate and public health protections.

TELL YOUR GOVERNOR: TAKE THE LEAD ON CLIMATE ACTION

With America’s departure from the historic Paris Climate Agreement, the responsibility for climate action now falls on others: States, businesses, universities, local leaders, and communities. States—and their governors—hold particular power in the fight against devastating climate change. Already, we have seen several states announce they will follow the targets set by the Agreement. However, we need more. With the federal government surrendering its chance to lead on climate action, our states must be as aggressive as possible in the effort to thwart global warming and protect the health of our children. The future of our families and our world depend upon it. Let your governor know that you demand climate action and you need them to take the lead.

SAVE THE MONARCH BUTTERFLY FROM EXTINCTION

The monarch population has declined by 95 percent in just the last two decades, as pesticides have ravaged their precious milkweed habitat. We can do something about it before it’s too late. By regrowing milkweed, and making it profitable for farmers to do so, we will restore the habitat that monarchs need to survive. Please tell your governor to support conservation efforts that will help save this fast-disappearing creature.

TELL THE SENATE TO END FOSSIL FUEL SUBSIDIES

Oil and gas giants- some of the world’s most profitable companies- are granted hundreds of millions of dollars in tax subsidies each year–while they continue to contribute to dangerous climate change. Millions of Americans struggle to make ends meet. But we are helping make dirty energy companies—and their lobbyists–very rich. Tell the Senate that it’s time to end these tax breaks for wealthy and powerful oil, gas and coal companies.
