Protect the Environment: End the Government Shutdown

In addition to costing hundreds of thousands of people their jobs, the shutdown has prevented several key federal agencies from protecting the environment. The EPA has been hit particularly hard with over 94% of its employees being sent home!

This means that the employees who “ensure continued public health and safety, including safe use of food and drugs and safe use of hazardous materials” are no longer working. Workers who protect federal lands and who provide disaster and emergency aid have been sent home. Meanwhile, the threats to our environment will not rest.

We can’t afford to let the environment go unprotected—there’s too much at stake. Take action below by sending a letter to your members of Congress and telling them to end the government shutdown.
