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 Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation announced their plans to roll back America’s health-protective and money-saving clean car standards. The proposal to abandon existing, effective standards is an affront to American families. With this rollback, our air will become dirtier, our children sicker, and our gas bills bigger. Tell Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler and Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao: parents won’t stand for these rollbacks that threaten our children’s health.
Moms and dads are a powerful constituency when it comes to decisions our elected officials make. It’s up to us to speak out for the health of our communities and families by voting. It’s our responsibility not only as Americans, but as parents. Our children can’t vote, so we must raise our voices for them. Join moms voting to protect our kids.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.
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
