Clean air to breathe, clean water to drink

To promote clean water and air, Environment North Carolina, our national network of 29 state affiliates, 所有50个州的成员和活动家都在开展这些项目和活动:

Litigation Project: For 30 years, 我们的国家诉讼团队已经根据《bet5365首页》直接将污染者告上法庭, Clean Air Act and other environmental laws, 赢得了超过2.5亿美元的法庭罚款和减少污染的行动.

Clean Water Network: Since 2014, 我们的国家组织协调了清洁水网络, 联合250多个地方和区域公民团体,成为更有效的清洁水冠军.

Get the Lead Out: 不仅仅是弗林特:数百万美国孩子的饮用水中都含有铅. 我们正在呼吁州和地方领导人把铅取出来, starting with schools and day care centers.

Safe For Swimming: 美国所有的水道都应该对游泳安全, 然而,我们的水每年都被数十亿加仑的污水和雨水所污染.

Our approach

这些活动和项目都旨在以独特的方式保护我们饮用的水和呼吸的空气. But they share a common approach. Each campaign strives to:

Put the environment first. 一个健康的环境并不是繁荣所期望的副产品. 它是必要的前提和可持续的源泉. Through our research and public education, 我们正在努力让更多的人认同这一观点.

Take a strategic approach. 我们必须高瞻远瞩,大胆行动,但我们认识到进步是一步一步来的. 我们的重点是在公共政策、生活和环境方面做出改变, not just making a statement.

Build on what works. Our national network has won policies, 使河流变得更干净的行动和决定, streams, lakes, bays, harbors, estuaries and drinking water across the country. 我们知道哪些政策是有效的,如何改进它们,以及如何才能赢得它们的批准. 和往常一样,我们也对更好的新想法持开放态度.

Work together. 我们致力于团结来自各个政治派别的人们,围绕清洁的水和空气. Our advocates in Washington, D.C., lobby members of Congress from both parties. 我们在州一级的倡导者建立了包括医生和护士在内的联盟, outdoors lovers, 小企业主和各行各业的人. 我们国家网络的组织者和游说者吸引了成千上万的人, and its members and activists live in all 50 states.
