Earlier this week Trump released his budget proposal, and it’s as bad as you could imagine! This is why we’re joining an emergency rally and march tomorrow with Chicago EPA workers to defend our air, water and communities.

Trump proposes total elimination of funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), environmental justice program, radon detection and lead risk reduction, among others, as well as deep slashes to funding for the Superfund cleanup program.

Eliminating the GLRI would be a huge mistake! The initiative is a bipartisan plan to protect the Great Lakes, our drinking water, and the local economies that depend on them.
