Save the EPA: Press Conference and Rally

  • Old Town Square , Fort Collins Co (map)

As you read this Congress is advancing a national de-regulatory agenda and attacking the crucial evironmental protections we depend on for our clean water and clean air. 

The Environmental Protection Agency is tasked with protecting our water and air from a variety of pollution sources pursuant to the Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act among others. These include protecting our waterways from factory farm pollution runoff, ensuring water quality, and regulating dangerous air pollution.

ENVIRONMENTAL HARM MEANS HUMAN HARM: 
~~ When water is polluted by factory farms, it means that people living downstream get poisoned. 
~~ When air is polluted by power plants and refineries, it means people living nearby get poisoned. 
~~ When water systems are allowed to deteriorate and there is insufficient federal response – like in Flint, Michigan – it means people get poisoned.
