The Trump Administration is leaving American families vulnerable by stalling work to ban chemicals called organohalogen flame retardants in TV plastic casings.

TVs containing hazardous flame retardants in their plastic casings can release them into the air and dust—exposing a family in their own home. The European Union just took action to ban these dangerous chemicals. If Trump’s EPA won’t protect us, we need our biggest retailers to act.

For years, DC residents have organized to make their communities better places to live, work, and play. DC residents raise their families in our nation’s capital, pay taxes, and serve on juries. They serve in the military and work together to create a strong community so children can learn and grow. Yet, every day, these 702,000 residents of the capital of the world's oldest democracy are denied the right to participate in that same democracy.

For years Cargill has put profit first, polluting our water and environment to increase its bottom line. Millions of gallons of toxic waste dumped into American waterways, dozens of systematic violations of the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, and ecosystem clearance on a global scale show Cargill’s entire supply chain contributes to an array of environmental issues.

California’s ground-breaking Safer Consumer Products (SCP) program creates a scientifically based regulatory structure so that product manufacturers can explore safer alternatives to toxic chemicals in the products they sell here. This program is a win for Californians who want to protect their families and the environment, as well as for companies who want to meet market demands for safer products, both in this state and beyond. Help us make it stronger today.

Protect the Great Lakes, Shut Down Line 5

We are winning the fight to shut down Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline. Enbridge and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce might have millions of dollars, but our people-powered campaign has led the way for bold action from Attorney General Nessel and Governor Whitmer. But we’re not done yet – this is a critical moment and your state senator and representative need to hear from you.

Poly- and perfluorinated alkyl substances, commonly known as PFAS, are a class of almost 5,000 man-made chemicals that pose a serious threat to public health and the environment:

They are in the bodies of virtually all Americans, and can contaminate drinking water, air, soil, and food. According to a limited federal monitoring program, California has the most drinking water detections (435) in the nation. As we look for more PFAS at lower levels than the federal government, we will likely discover that the problem is much worse than we thought.
