Please join me in Washington, DC on June 12th & 13th
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
The battle to get one of the world's most harmful pesticides banned is heating up. On June 12th, I will be giving a 25 minute presentation at the US Environmental Protection Agency's hearings on the effects of Atrazine on aquatic wildlife. I strongly urge all concerned members of the public to attend and give public comment. You will be able to speak for 3-5 minutes IF you reserve a spot in advance. It is free to talk and to attend. Is it important is it that you show up? I am told that at the 2010 Atrazine hearings, there were about 100 pesticide industry lobbyists present, and only two total people who opposed Atarazine. Currently I am the ONLY person opposing Atrazine scheduled to speak. So YES, you better be there if you can make it! More info on Atrazine is available at: http://savethefrogs.com/atrazine
To reserve your spot, please email Matten.Sharlene@epamail.epa.gov and ALSO cc us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we know to expect you. You can download this EPA PDF for more info. Public comments will begin the afternoon of Tuesday June 12th and may go through Wednesday June 13th depending on how many speakers there are. Speakers can be any age. See you there!!!
Can't make it to DC? Then submit a comment to the EPA today
If you cannot attend the hearings, then please submit your comment to the EPA here . You can disregard the "Organization Name" and other columns on the left of that page. We suggest writing a personalized comment. Here is a sample comment you can modify and use.
Thanks to Breanna Binder for the photo and for preparing the sample comment!
Please donate to fund our Atrazine campaign!
It's us against Syngenta, Atrazine's producer, the largest pesticide company on the planet, with 11 billion dollars in revenues and hundreds of lobbyists working politicians fulltime. We need your help. Please make the largest contribution you can to help our campaign: it's tax-deductible and will help frogs, humans and lots of other wildlife species that share the planet with us. Thank you!!!
Please sign the Atrazine petition if you haven't!
We've collected over 13,000 signatures asking the EPA to ban Atrazine. Help us reach our goal of 15,000 before the public meeting.
