Why do so many Members of Congress stand by – or, even worse, pile on – whenever the Trump Administration advances another one of its reckless anti-environment giveaways to big polluters?
Maybe it’s because things have been systematically rigged to boost the influence wielded by big polluters and other corporate special interests. When people like you who care about clean water are effectively shut out – or worse, ignored by those elected to represent us – bad things can happen.
Tuesday was a good day for clean water!
Thanks to clean water members and clean water voters we helped elect a pro-environment majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. We also elected governors and state legislators across the country who will focus on protecting clean water and healthy communities. We’re heading into 2019 with a lot of momentum. Check out all our wins here.
Clean Water members and activists were one of the bright spots of 2017. Throughout the year member and activists like you sent messages, mailed letters, signed postcards, and made phone calls. You attended rallies and town hall events. You got involved and you spoke loud and clear.
Simple. Hillary is a longtime environmental champion who will fight for us. Donald Trump would be a disaster.
The choice hasn't been this clear in a long time.
2015 was a year of big wins for Clean Water Action, despite well-funded opposition by polluters and their allies in Congress!
Victory #1: In May of 2015, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized the Clean Water rule that restores protection to the sources of drinking water for 1 in 3 Americans. Clean Water Action helped lead the campaign that made this happen, generating hundreds of thousands of emails, letters, and postcards to the EPA and the White House calling for strong action.
