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 CONGRESS TO PROTECT EPA
Recent reports indicate that President Trump is set to propose a fiscal plan that will slash the EPA’s budget by up to 24%, reduce its staff by one-fifth, and cut programs that combat global warming and keep our air and water clean. Such an attack threatens the health of our children and families, and will gut an agency that saves lives and protects us all—Republicans, Democrats, and Independents alike. We must let our members of Congress know that we will not stand for anything but clean air, clean water, and good health—and a commitment to preserving the EPA.TAKE ACTION NOW!
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.
President Trump’s executive orders prove that protections from air and climate pollution will not come from the White House. The executive orders will set polluters free to dirty our air, damage our lungs, and destroy our planet. Our members of Congress now bear the responsibility of climate and clean air leadership. We must speak up—to tell our senators that we demand clean air and climate safeguards, and that we are looking to them. Take action now and tell your senators: protect our health from air and climate pollution.
America’s Clean Power Plan is the first-ever national curb on the most significant driver of human-caused climate pollution: Carbon dioxide emissions. The Plan allows states to create individual roadmaps for stimulating the deployment of clean, reliable and affordable energy sources. Tell your governor to get started on crafting a State Implementation Plan for America’s Clean Power Plan.Send a Message
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.Send a Message
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.Send a Message
