Dear Kevin,

When a New York company came to the Puerto Rican town of Arecibo to build a waste incinerator, officials said the project would be approved in a matter of months. They couldn’t have been more wrong. For the past six years, the community has used a bedrock environmental law called the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to make their voices heard and demand accountability.

Now that law, which has helped communities from Standing Rock to Arecibo, is under attack.

Watch this video to learn how one community used NEPA to fight back for the environment and their health—then find out how you can get involved to protect this important law.

Sincerely,

Keith Rushing
Lead Advocacy Press Secretary
