TAKE ACTION 

Here’s 3 things you can do to help:

1) Submit a public comment to support the Clean Power Plan, which would curb pollution from power plants like the one near Jacob’s school in Las Vegas (and around the country): http://greenforall.org/cleanpowerplan

2) Call Congress to protect U.S. Environmental Protection Agency funding from getting cut so we can hold them accountable to do their job! Much of EPA's money gets re-granted to states for things like water infrastructure. Call 202-335-1787

3) Ask your state Governor to use VW settlement money to transition dirty diesel buses to clean zero emission buses. Sign the petition here
