EPA … URGENT: Trump’s attacks have begun

Trump and Pruitt just launched their attack on the EPA. Support the resistance!

Do we want to go back EPA gif

Give to Greenpeace by MIDNIGHT TONIGHT to join the RESIST supporter drive and fight back!

Donate now!

The attack on the EPA — and our clean air and water — has begun. Yesterday, Trump started his promised rollback of the EPA with devastating budget cuts1 and a new executive order on the Waters of the United States Rule, a critical protection for streams, lakes, and other waterways.2 Before this important rule, 117-million Americans — one in three people in the country — depended on the drinking water that lacked these basic protections.3

Now, thanks to Trump, their water will be in danger again. Help us fight back!

In light of these developments, Greenpeace is raising the goal for our RESIST supporter drive from 1,000 supporters to 1,500. We need all the help we can get to resist the attacks from the Trump administration’s dangerous anti-environment agenda. Will you please help us step up our resistance with your urgent contribution by midnight tonight?

Unbelievably, Trump and new EPA head, Scott Pruitt, claim that the EPA can better protect our air and water without critical regulations like the Clean Power Plan or Waters of the US Rule.4Wrong! We have to expose these insidious attacks on our environment for what they are: favors to the fossil fuel industry at the expense of our air, water, health, and the safety of our communities. Your support for Greenpeace will give us the resources to do that.

Stand with this movement now — RESIST!

Together we will demonstrate the power of our movement — and keep demanding change until we achieve a just, sustainable world for all.

Thank you for your continued support,

Rebecca Gerber
Climate Team, Greenpeace USA

P.S. The news about this new executive order is crushing, but giving up has never been what Greenpeace stands for! Help us fight back for our communities and environment. Please donate by midnight tonight so we can reach our goal for this supporter drive and scale up our nationwide resistance across the country.
