Our hard work is paying off: The U.S. EPA has announced it will reconsider its decision to allow the use of this toxic pesticide. It has opened a public comment period.
On April 28th, the day before the EPA's comment period closes, the UFW and our partners' goal is to turn in a petition with 200,000 signatures. We already have more than 40,000 signatures.
As Cesar Chavez said, "Why do we allow farm workers to carry the burden of pesticides on their shoulders?"
Help us get rid of this toxin for once and for all. Sign our petition and urge the EPA and Administrator Lisa Jackson to do their job and protect the people.
Si Se Puede!
