Stop Trump from making cutbacks to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  Cutbacks will curtail research of environmental impact on the health and welfare of children. The budget cuts to the EPA will worsen air quality for all people, especially those disproportionately affected by pollution. This includes children and the elderly, minority groups and low-income families.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was created to implement environmental regulations that would protect American citizens. Without EPA regulations, we as a nation are at risk for experiencing high levels of pollution. These high levels of pollution can cause chronic health problems such as lung cancer and blood clotting. In 2012, 7 million deaths occurred worldwide as a result of air pollution. 

The Trump Administration and EPA administrator Scott Pruitt are attempting to cut EPA’s funding by 31%, eliminate roughly 50 of the agency’s programs, and remove 3200 EPA staff positions. If this budget goes through then the climate and Americans health would be at great risk. Climate protection and clean air would be inhibited. The EPA would not be able to enforce America’s health and environmental laws as well as struggle to perform its core functions. 

Stop Trump from making cutbacks to the EPA so it could continue to make the environment viable for safe living.
