Sign On Letter to fund Flint

The deadline to sign on is Wednesday, August 17.

Please see the note below from HOW Coalition co-chair Mike Shriberg, Great Lakes Regional Executive Director with the National Wildlife Federation:

On behalf of the National Wildlife Federation and as one of the co-chairs of HOW, I want to strongly urge your organizations to sign on to the letter linked below urging Congress to (finally) provide federal aid to Flint.  This letter was crafted by both local community groups in Flint and through a national coalition that NWF is helping to lead (and includes HOW partners like American Rivers and Sierra Club).  We’re planning to send this up to the Hill when Congress returns from recess in September, with sign-ons requested by Wednesday, August 17.

The letter highlights the Senate Water Resources and Development Act as the most viable legislative proposal currently pending to respond to the environmental and public health disaster. This links it closely to HOW’s work and is one concrete way that our organizations can engage in this critical issue – something that I know we all want to do but often are lacking the contacts, context and venues to do effectively.  Again, here’s the link to see the letter and sign-on:https://goo.gl/forms/iir2kI5BsNw2rymB2.  Feel free to forward widely. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
