Send your congress men and women a message about what matters most to you - and how you’re going to continue to fight for it in the days, weeks and months ahead.
You can quickly message your representatives through our letter campaign below. Alternatively, we’re offering printable postcards for download. Either way, we've got you covered.
To support our current campaign, copy and paste the text below into your message, or you can edit as needed:
Dear Senator/Representative ______:
October 10, 2019 is Children’s Environmental Health Day. The Office of Children’s Health Protection (OCHP) is the only office in EPA dedicated solely to the protection of children from environmental hazards such as lead, pesticide exposures, and air pollution. Please protect OCHP from any attempts to cut its budget, or to dismantle, re-organize, or reduce that office’s abilities and authorities.
Continued funding is also needed for the NIEHS/EPA Children's Environmental Health & Disease Prevention Research Centers (Children's Centers) to continue researching how the environment affects children's health in order to inform child-protective practices and policies throughout the country and especially in our most vulnerable communities.
Our children’s optimal health and development is critical for the stability and security of our country. I would like to know what actions you are taking to ensure that OCHP and the Children's Centers can continue to fulfill their missions unhindered.
