Support the DERAIL Act
Each year, more than 1,000 trains go off track in the US, and any one of them could be the next epicenter of an environmental disaster rivaling that of the recent catastrophic toxic train explosion in East Palestine, Ohio — but you can do something about it.
Take action to protect your community from the next environmental tragedy caused by lax train safety standards. Support the Decreasing Emergency Railroad Accident Incidents Locally Act of 2023 (DERAIL Act).
All it takes is one, just one hazardous car on a train and a simple mistake to turn a thriving city into a disaster area. So shouldn't we do everything possible to reduce that risk? The DERAIL Act ensures that all trains carrying any hazardous materials have the highest levels of safety requirements.
Join us in fighting for a safer future. Sign this petition and stand with us by telling Congress to support the DERAIL Act and make safety for our citizens and our environment the top priority.

Dear Members of Congress,
We the people are constantly in danger from train derailment disasters like the one in East Palestine, Ohio. All trains carrying dangerous substances should be required to be as safe as possible. We respectfully ask you to pass the Decreasing Emergency Railroad Accident Incidents Locally Act of 2023 to make it so all trains carrying even one car's worth of highly-hazardous materials have the highest safety standards possible.
Thank you for protecting our communities and your consideration on this important issue.
