Millions of people live in the shadow of oil refineries and are forced to breathe air that sickens and kills—especially our vulnerable children.
Too many are exposed to uncontrolled chemical releases every day, including the nine refinery disasters that have been federally investigated by the Chemical Safety board in the last 10 years alone.
The oil industry knows the dangers and is fighting new protections against reducing toxic emissions, even though stronger pollution controls exist and are in use at many of the nation’s refineries.
Please join with us in supporting efforts to ensure refineries clean up their act and our air.
The EPA needs to finalize a plan to protect communities, particularly children, from unacceptable cancer and other health threats, posed by polluting oil refineries. We need your help to ensure EPA strengthens health protections and reduces toxic air by standing up to Big Oil.
We are in courts across the nation to protect the rights of communities who are being exposed to too much air pollution. We worked with local communities to compel EPA to perform this important rule making. The next step is for you to stand with us and fight Big Oil's attempts to weaken the protections all Americans need.
Tell EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy that she must stand up to Big Oil and protect every community's right to breathe clean, healthy air.
