Call-In DAY: Urge Schumer to Defend the EPA! (Aug 15th- Your Telephone!)

On August 15, join Food & Water Watch and our allies for a statewide call-in day to Senator Schumer to urge him to defend the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)! 

Call Senator Schumer TODAY @ 866-961-3208 and urge him to accept NO cuts to the EPA! And encourage your friends and community members to make a quick call! 

Donald Trump is proposing to slash the Environmental Protection Agency budget by 31%, eliminating thousands of jobs, and undermining enforcement of laws that safeguard our water and air. New York communities would be hard-hit by these cuts. The cleanups of the Gowanus Canal and Newtown Creek in Brooklyn could be disrupted. Programs to combat global warming would be eliminated, risking further climate catastrophes like Superstorm Sandy. As the nation’s most powerful Democrat, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer must draw a line in the sand and refuse to support a budget that cuts EPA’s funding. 

Note: This toll-free number allows us to track the number of calls that we generate. It cycles through Schumer's eight offices, so if you don't get through the first time, dial again.
