Residents in Ohio and Pennsylvania have been repeatedly told that they are “safe” after a Norfolk Southern train derailment caused a huge release of hazardous chemicals into the air, land, and water. Meanwhile, residents are continuing to report that they are experiencing health issues—from rashes to difficulty breathing—and are expected to navigate the emergency response and healthcare systems on their own.
This needs to change.
"Safe" means people can vacuum their homes without worrying about kicking up toxic pollution.
“Safe” means having independent test results that examine every necessary parameter and indicate there’s no harm.
“Safe” means being able to be in your home without the risk that health problems will develop months or years from now.
Add your name to this petition to Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro.
Families on the front lines of mining, drilling, and fracking urgently need allies in their fight for environmental justice. Can you help us give them the support they deserve and win the clean energy future all of us so desperately need?
