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.
The Trump administration has jeopardized the integrity of the Environmental Protection Agency, cutting crucial safeguards that protect our communities and our children from air pollution and climate change. Standing at the helm of this sinking ship is EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. It’s time he was relieved of this command. He’s had over a year now to get his act together and stand up for our children’s health — instead, he has protected polluters. Tell Congress: we deserve an EPA administrator who will work to protect our families — that person is not Scott Pruitt.
A new proposal compels EPA to subject high-quality research to extreme, unnecessary, and untenable levels of disclosure — but it also includes loopholes that would allow Pruitt’s administration to exempt industry from having to disclose details of their own studies. We call it the Censored Science Proposal. Join moms across the country in telling Pruitt that he can’t erase the truth about pollution.
No one should lose a loved one to deadly chemicals. But right now you can walk into stores and buy paint strippers containing deadly chemicals right off the shelf–these products have killed numerous Americans. In January of 2017, the EPA proposed banning methylene chloride in paint strippers, but the Trump Administration backed off under pressure from the chemical industry. Tell EPA it’s time to ban methylene chloride in paint stripping products.
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.
Trump’s proposed budget for FY 2019 will dramatically slash the EPA budget, 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.
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.
Among our most essential rights: Healthy lungs, hearts and brains. Safe and thriving families, communities, and economies. A serious commitment to defeat climate change. The right to live free from pollution. This is our Declaration of Freedom from Pollution. It means that all Americans can expect a happier and healthier life. Declare your right to freedom from pollution below.Send a Message
