Urge President Biden: Support Safe and Sufficient Drinking Water for All!

Safe and affordable drinking water is a human right, and it is especially critical that people have access to safe running water during the current COVID-19 pandemic. But nearly 130 million people in the U.S. — disproportionately in communities of color and low-income communities — receive their water from systems that often puts them at increased risk of cancer, infertility, developmental delays, and other health impacts.

The Safe Drinking Water Act should protect us from these threats, but pollution of drinking water sources, decades of poor oversight, underinvestment in drinking water infrastructure, and segregation and other forms of discrimination, have left people — especially communities of color — at greater risk. Water systems across the country are still using old lead service lines, and tens of millions of us are drinking toxic forever PFAS chemicals.

So we need to demand that the incoming Biden-Harris administration act to strengthen and uphold the Safe Drinking Water Act for everyone. Send a message: Fix our federal drinking water law and ensure safe drinking water conditions for all.

It's clear that when it comes to race, the nation's Safe Drinking Water Act does not protect everyone equally.
