What's At Stake
In February 2023, a train carrying a petrochemical called vinyl chloride, which companies use to make plastic, derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, exposing residents to toxic gases linked to serious health risks such as cancer and contaminating the air, soil, and a major water source used by millions of people. Now, a year later, residents are still suffering from the aftermath of the toxic train derailment.
This disaster was – and is – one of the worst in U.S. history.
Show your support for residents in East Palestine, Ohio, and surrounding communities by calling on the Biden administration to sign the pending disaster declaration in East Palestine. This would enable the federal government to give residents and small businesses the financial relief, health services, and comprehensive environmental testing that they desperately require.
