Red, White & Water
In 1969, the spectacle of the Cuyahoga river literally catching on fire inspired a movement of Americans to fight the unregulated dumping of waste into our rivers and streams.
That movement led a Democratic Congress and a Republican President to enact the Clean Water Act in 1972 — a law that remains one of the most popular laws ever passed by Congress.
Today, our nation’s clean water laws are experiencing an unprecedented assault through congressional bills to undermine the Clean Water Act and attempts to keep government agencies from protecting our water.
Our Red, White & Water campaign is devoted to protecting our waterways from future threats. Join us in the movement to protect our clean water — sign the Red, White & Water pledge today!

Clean Water, Not Coal Ash!
Federal safeguards have yet to be developed to prevent another coal ash disaster like the one that inundated Tennessee’s Emory River in 2008. Yet Senate Bill 3512 would stop the U.S. EPA from enacting guidelines that would protect waterways from coal ash waste pollution. Send your Senator an email TODAY telling them to OPPOSE S. 3512.
