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 TODAY
The largest source of carbon pollution is power plants. Right now, there are absolutely no limits on carbon pollution. That’s plain wrong. Fortunately, the EPA has proposed new rules that would place limits on carbon pollution from power plants. Tell the EPA that you care about climate change and support limiting carbon pollution from power plants.
TELL THE EPA: PROTECT US FROM NATURAL GAS POLLUTION
People are suffering under the burden of severe air pollution as a consequence of natural gas development. These communities deserve our support in protecting their right to clean, healthy air. Please tell the EPA that we need national protection against methane pollution from the oil and gas industry.Send a Message
TELL THE EPA: PROTECT CHILDREN FROM DANGEROUS CHEMICAL FACILITIES
1 in 10 children at nearly 10,000 schools learn and play each school day within one mile of a facility that stores large quantities of hazardous chemicals. These children–4.6 million in all 50 states–are at risk of grave harm in the event of a chemical release due to accident, terrorism, or natural disaster.
Safer alternatives to many toxic hazards already exist, but until facilities are required to adopt them, millions of children will be at risk of catastrophic chemical exposure. Tell EPA that adopting safer alternatives should be mandatory, not voluntary. We need improved regulations that prioritize the safety of our children.Send a Message
TELL YOUR SENATORS: PROTECT OUR FAMILIES FROM TOXIC CHEMICALS
Our current chemical safety law, the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, is badly broken. It allows chemicals onto the market without adequate safety testing. We think it’s time to change that. Tell your Senators to support strong legislation that truly protects vulnerable populations, such as babies and children, from the health effects of toxic chemical exposures.Send a Message
TELL THE SENATE TO END TAX BREAKS FOR OIL, GAS AND COAL
Millions of Americans struggle to make ends meet. But the world’s richest and most powerful companies–billion dollar corporate oil and gas giants–are getting hundreds of millions of dollars, every year, from the U.S. government in the form of tax breaks. Tell the Senate that it’s time to end these tax breaks for wealthy and powerful oil, gas and coal companies.Send a Message
URGE BARACK OBAMA TO STOP THE KEYSTONE PIPELINE
The Keystone pipeline encourages the development for many decades of Alberta’s tar sands, some of the dirtiest fuel on the planet. The United States can, and must, refuse to be complicit–refuse to be a partner–in harvesting this filthy fuel. Keystone is about yesterday’s power. We must focus–as engineers, economists, and parents and consumers–on tomorrow’s power. Please tell President Obama to stop the Keystone pipeline.

TELL YOUR GOVERNOR TO SUPPORT CLEAN AIR FOR KIDS
Air pollution can trigger asthma attacks, interfere with lung development, and increase adverse birth outcomes. Air pollution can also change our climate and trigger extreme weather events. Please tell your Governor to protect our children’s health by working to make the air in your state as clean as possible.
