Join the Phila Sierra Club Outings MeetUp Group.
Do you remember what our air and water was like before the EPA? What will Philadelphia and Pennsylvania be like in the future if the EPA is defunded or eliminated? Can we rely on state agencies to enforce needed standards on pollution and emissions?
On March 7 we held a rally in support of the EPA. Sierra Club volunteers and members of the American Federation of Government Employees, value how the EPA AFGE workers protect our environment and health. We need to protect their jobs! Defend the EPA!.
We are building a team to organize, strategize and take action to support the existance and purpose of the Environmental Protection Agency. Join our team.
If you want to help with a special project - an article or presentation about what our world was like before the EPA - contact Laura Womack firstname.lastname@example.org - to help with photos, editing, content.
