Some questions and Topics to help guide postcard writing parties:

  • How has environmental protection by the EPA impacted your life?
  • How can the EPA can support future research?
  • We know environmental impacts extend beyond our local communities. Tell us why you think it’s important that the federal government remains a key leader in the environmental movement.
  • Environmental regulations protect our drinking water. EPA supports local and state governments with millions of dollars in grants and technical assistance to improve drinking water and wastewater systems.
  • EPA goes after companies that flout the law. When Volkswagen tried to cheat on emissions standards and mislead consumers and the government, EPA won and agreement for the company to buy back vehicles from consumers and pay billions in penalties that will go to states to mitigate air pollution impacts.
  • Communities of color are more likely to live in polluted areas, and to suffer health effects like asthma. We need environmental justice now!
  • Clean energy is our future. 83% of Americans want our government to invest in clean, renewable energy sources. Climate change is real!
