Save the EPA
Tomorrow, thousands of people from around the country will take part in a rally outside of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) headquarters in Washington, DC to protest EPA’s inaction on protecting children from cancer and illnesses.
A determined coalition of parents and victims of toxic exposure is organizing this event. They are fearless and determined to pressure EPA to take toxic pollution seriously.
PEER is proud to help sponsor this rally. PEER’s recent work reveals how EPA routinely deletes and minimizes hazards in chemicals and pesticides at the expense of public health.
These parents are suffering the direct consequences of EPA’s wrongdoing and inaction, and they are intent on applying direct pressure on EPA to change their ways. The rally starts at 9am at Freedom Plaza. If you are in DC and want to join the rally, please contact me for more information. We would be happy to have you join us and continue to support PEER’s work to hold the EPA accountable.
