Petitioning Michigan's District 6 Rep. Fred Upton

Take a Stand Against Rep. Upton's Attacks on the EPA


For 40 years, the Environmental Protection Agency has played a critical role in protecting our health by cleaning up our air and water. Today, however, a powerful member of Congress has launched an aggressive assault on the EPA’s authority to keep our families healthy.

Rep. Fred Upton from Michigan's District 6 is leading the charge for the Tea Party and its dirty industry backers. Upton, the new chairman of the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee, has introduced legislation that seeks to remove many of the safeguards that protect our health and our future.

We’re running online and print advertisements in his district to make sure the voters understand what Rep. Upton is trying to do and make your voices heard. You can add your name to the ad and help get his attention.

We’re not going to stand silently by and are running ads in the Kalamazoo Gazette. If you’re a constituent of Rep. Upton, you can add your name by completing the form at right.

Letter to
Michigan's District 6 Rep. Fred Upton
... but instead of supporting the EPA's ability to keep us safe, Rep Upton is taking us backward and trying to stop the EPA from doing its job.

As constituents of Representative Upton, we are dismayed and disappointed that he wants to remove important public safeguards. We urge Representative Upton to think of Michigan's families and not paid special interests.
