As mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts and uncles, sisters and brothers, we're all working hard to protect and care for our families now, when they need it most.
While we are reeling from the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Environmental Protection Agency has been breaking down the very protections we count on long-term for clean air, clean water and a healthy environment in which to raise our families.
Enough is enough.
Here's one thing you can do today: call them out on Twitter. This is our public square now, so let's use it!

- Moms and dads are working hard all over this country to keep their homes clean and their families #safe & #healthy! We didn't drop our standards because of #COVID19, so why did you @EPA? #DirtyAirEPADontCare https://www.texastribune.org/2020/03/27/coronavirus-era-trump-administration-halts-environmental-protections/
- #MomsKnow that people with health conditions aggravated by pollution, like asthma, are at higher risk of dying from a respiratory illness like #COVID19! So why is the @EPA weakening auto #emissions standards? @MothersOutFront wants to know? #DirtyAirEPADontCare
- Our children count on us everyday to make the right decisions to protect them. Families and communities are counting on you, @EPAAWheeler to protect us in ways that we cannot as individuals. Use your power to protect and not pollute. #DirtyAirEPADontCare #KeepItCleanEPA
- The @EPA SHOULD protect our water, our air, and our families. Vulnerable communities count on you to set standards that reduce the impacts of industry on their health. But you're protecting oil and gas industries instead of us? Who pays your salary? #DirtyAirEPADontCare
