The Environmental Protection Agency's integrity has been compromised under the leadership of former coal lobbyist and EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. Yet our families rely on this agency to protect our families from pollution and keep us safe from climate change.
The Trump EPA is ignoring and attacking the scientific basis of crucial environmental policies. It has disbanded key scientific advisory groups, removed scientific information from its website, and favored industry-funded scientists to serve on key panels. This negligence puts our children's health and future directly at risk. Moms disapprove.
Tell your congressional representatives to use their oversight authority to hold the Environmental Protection Agency accountable to protecting families, not polluters.
SUBJECT: Parents urge you to hold EPA accountable to families
Dear [Decision Maker],
As a parent, I am writing today deeply concerned about the anti-science policies coming out of the Environmental Protection Agency. This agency exists to protect our communities and our children from threats from polluted water in our local rivers to runaway climate change.
Yet instead of protecting our families, the EPA is ignoring scientific findings and rolling back crucial protections. The agency has disbanded key scientific advisory groups, removed scientific information from its website, and favored industry-funded scientists to serve on key panels. It is beyond time to take decisive action on air pollution and climate change. Sidelining science won't change the facts: Our children's health and future is at stake.
Every child in America should have the right to clean air, clean water, and a safe future. Under Andrew Wheeler, the EPA is gambling with those rights. Our children will face the worst impacts of the climate crisis, while contributing to it the least. We must do everything we can to protect their future.

Please, hold the EPA accountable for protecting our families, not polluters.
