Rally for Clean Air! Show your support for strong mercury standards

President Obama is facing a December 16 deadline to enact the first-ever federal mercury standards. If he follows through, this would be a major environmental victory with long-lasting effects on the health of Ohioans. Please join us in Cleveland next Thursday. This is our last chance to support strong mercury standards and push back against the abuses of big polluters!

WHAT: A community discussion at the Cleveland Public Library followed by a honk-a-thon in Willard Park.

WHERE: Cleveland Public Library, 325 Superior Ave., Cleveland (map) & Willard Park, corner of East 9th St. and Lakeside Ave. E (map)

WHEN: December 1 at 11 a.m., honk-a-thon to follow at noon.

Health professionals and mothers will be on hand to discuss the dangers of mercury and how the new standards will help save lives. Children are particularly impacted by the destructive health affects of mercury, so we are calling on ALL parents to help push these protections across the finish line. Bring the kids, too. There will be plenty of fun! If big polluters have their way, these protections will be dead in the water. Please join us for this final push! RSVP here.
