Oppose EPA Budget Cuts! Call Sen. Schumer Tues. 8/15!

From our friends at Food and Water Watch: Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans are attempting to slash the Environmental Protection Agency budget, threatening its ability to protect our water, air and climate. We invite you to join us this Tuesday, August 15 for a call-in day to Senator Schumer, urging him to defend the EPA.

On Tuesday, please call Senator Chuck Schumer at 866-961-3208 to ask him to oppose ANY cuts to the EPA – and spread the word to your members and community.

House Republicans are proposing to cut hundreds of millions of dollars from the EPA. These cuts would risk the safety of our water and air, undermine efforts to stop climate change and endanger the health of our families and communities.

As Senate Minority Leader, Schumer must lead the charge against the Republican assault on the EPA. As the nation's most powerful Democrat, Schumer must draw a firm line against any cuts to the EPA budget. The health of New York's – and the nation's – families, communities and environment is at stake.
