NO to Pipelines, YES to Clean Energy

Fracked gas pollutes our air, water and land. Over half of our energy profile still relies on the fossil fuel industry, but we can change that and start to invest more in renewable energy.

No more pipelines over people. Sign on to stop gas fracked pipelines.


Protect Pollinators in the Northeast

Did you know one in every three bites of food we eat depends on bees? As the chemical industry continues their work to convince us that pesticides are great, more studies come out linking the chemicals in these products to serious issues, such as a huge decline in honeybees. 

Sign to save the bees, and end pesticide use in the Northeast.


Protect Our Drinking Water from Toxics

Everyone deserves clean water. But that isn’t the case for communities across the country whose water is contaminated by the toxic Teflon chemicals known as PFAS.

PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are found in everyday products like non-stick Teflon pans along with firefighting foam used at military bases across the country. These chemicals are linked to kidney disorders, cancers and other serious health conditions and are estimated to be in the drinking water of over 110 million people in the U.S. alone.

It’s time for real action on PFAS. We are calling for a strong, enforceable national drinking water standard to require cleanup of PFAS contamination and restore safe drinking water to every community affected by this toxic crisis.

Sign the petition and support a national standard to protect our drinking water.
