Trump "blueprint budget" Impact on the Environment
Our current short-term focus:
Environment: We must resist the Trump administration’s agenda on policy reversal and harmful legislation affecting all life on our planet.
We will focus on the administrations elimination of regulations that impact public health for this and future generations. The administration denies climate change, wants to revive the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, and has nominated to the Supreme Court a man who wants to empower big polluters, oil companies and their lobbyists.
We plan to work together to identify necessary urgent action items as well as championing long-term goals for the betterment of the world we live.
