You just did something amazing. You — and more than 100,000 parents from across the country — told EPA that we need to protect little lungs from smog pollution.
Thank you for speaking up.
It’s hard to know, sometimes, whether clicking to send a message to Washington really makes a difference. But we can tell you from what happened today: It does.
We wheeled your comments into EPA headquarters in a shiny red wagon, so proud of the outpouring of support you have shown for clean, healthy air. We delivered the comments directly into the hands of the EPA officials tasked with finalizing this critical pollution standard. And we could tell by their reaction how amazed they were by our numbers. By our Force.
What is this Force? It’s parents like you who insist that our children’s health matters. All these voices, all these clicks — they really add up. Your voice matters.
The more than 116,000 comments that we delivered today were just some of the hundreds of thousands of comments in support of strong smog standards that flooded the agency as the public comment period on its proposed smog standards came to a close.
Polluters may have money, but we have something more important: We have hundreds of thousands of voices, speaking up for what’s right. We have you.
Thank you again for all you are doing to help clean up pollution!
