The Trump administration recently announced plans to roll back the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), which requires considerations of environmental impact for new infrastructure projects. So why does that matter? NEPA gives regular people like you and me a voice in the approval process of projects that impact our communities and it ensures that companies keep the environmental and community impacts front and center in their planning processes.
We're not about it. Send your message to the Council on Environmental Quality to demand they abandon any attempts to roll back the National Environmental Policy Act.
Young people urge you to protect NEPA
Dear Chairwoman Neumayr,
As a young American, I am deeply concerned by the recent proposal to roll back crucial protections in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
We are facing a climate crisis -- and my generation will pay the deepest price. We need to be adding more safeguards, considering climate impacts, and working toward solutions, not rolling back rules that have been in place and working for the last 50 years.
Please stand with young people, not polluting industry, and keep NEPA intact. Our communities and our future are depending on it.
