Stop The Trump EPA's Toxic Assault On Our Families' Health

Chlorpyrifos (klor-PEER-a-foss), a widely-used pesticide, is linked to reduced IQ, developmental delay and increased risk of learning disabilities. The highly toxic chemical puts communities at risk when it drifts off farmland and into our air and water and leaves toxic residue on fruits and vegetables that we feed our families.

Yet President Trump's EPA recently rejected a proposed ban on chlorpyrifos — a ban recommended by the agency's own scientists — demonstrating once again that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is willing to sacrifice our children’s health for industry profits.

EPA is inviting public comments on this dangerous reversal. Tell Administrator Pruitt that you're outraged that he's siding with big polluters over the health of the American people — and urge him to protect our food supply by banning chlorpyrifos.
