Thank you for all you do for clean water

Thankful for Clean Water Members

As I look back on 2018, one thing becomes apparent -- Clean Water members and supporters matter.

16 new Clean Water leaders in Congress!

A Good Day, But Work Ahead

November 8, 2018

Tuesday was a good day for clean water!

Thanks to clean water members and clean water voters we helped elect a pro-environment majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. We also elected governors and state legislators across the country who will focus on protecting clean water and healthy communities. We’re heading into 2019 with a lot of momentum. Check out all our wins here.

We're Suing.

February 22, 2018

Scott Pruitt is playing games with streams, wetlands, and drinking water while he works on proposing a new rule that will shrink the number of streams and wetlands protected under the Clean Water Act. He practically dared us to sue EPA.

Thank you for all you do for clean water

We Just Want To Say Thank You

November 21, 2017

Clean Water members and activists were one of the bright spots of 2017. Throughout the year member and activists like you sent messages, mailed letters, signed postcards, and made phone calls. You attended rallies and town hall events. You got involved and you spoke loud and clear. 

Thank you from our NJ team

This week we gather with family and friends to give thanks and reflect on the past year. Though the past few weeks have been tough, as I think about 2016 and look forward to 2017, I am full of gratitude for Clean Water Action members.

Trump Won - But There is Good News

November 10, 2016

Having been through election wins and losses before, I know that we’ll be back as determined as ever, working to hold the line in Washington and advance new protections elsewhere around the country.

Why We're Supporting Hillary Clinton for President

August 1, 2016

Simple. Hillary is a longtime environmental champion who will fight for us. Donald Trump would be a disaster.

The choice hasn't been this clear in a long time.

Protecting Water Despite Big Polluter Opposition

Big Wins... Despite Big Opposition

January 3, 2016

2015 was a year of big wins for Clean Water Action, despite well-funded opposition by polluters and their allies in Congress!

Victory #1:  In May of 2015, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized the Clean Water rule that restores protection to the sources of drinking water for 1 in 3 Americans.  Clean Water Action helped lead the campaign that made this happen, generating hundreds of thousands of emails, letters, and postcards to the EPA and the White House calling for strong action.

Thank you!

November 26, 2015

This week we gather with family and friends to give thanks and reflect on the past year. As I think about 2015, I am full of gratitude for Clean Water Action members. And I am amazed at what we have accomplished. With Clean Water Action members leading the way, we won big for our water and communities. From fighting for new protections for streams and wetlands, the sources of drinking water for so many, to ending coal plants' free pass to dump waste into lakes and rivers, Clean Water Action members answer the call and make the critical difference. Thank you.
