    BREAKING: TRUMP TO CUT BILLIONS FROM EPA’s BUDGET

    The Trump administration’s budget wants to slash the EPA by 31%.

    There’s a short window to speak out against his budget request so it doesn’t become reality. We need your help.

    Fight back: Right now, every gift to League of Conservation Voters will be triple matched — even $5 helps a lot »

    The Trump administration just rolled out the official federal budget proposal for the year. This is bad: it includes a MASSIVE 31% cut to the EPA.

    Clean air protections. Toxic pollution rules. Clean water safeguards. All are at risk if this budget becomes law.

    We need your help. Trump doesn’t set the budget alone — these cuts are going to spark a huge showdown in Congress. We need every member of Congress hearing from their constituents. To make that happen, we need to organize in a major way.

    A major donor has just stepped up to TRIPLE MATCH every gift to this campaign. The best thing you can do right now to help is to make an emergency donation and have your gift tripled.

    We CAN block Trump’s budget, Lola. Please, please, please: Make a triple-matched gift of $5 or more to LCV today »

    I want you to know — we have a real shot at blocking these cuts. This IS a fight we can win. We have an environmental majority in the House right now, which means Trump can’t simply steamroll whatever priority he wants.

    But there’s a real risk here, too. By proposing such deep cuts, Trump is trying to carve out an initial negotiating position where even meeting him halfway would essentially decimate the agency that protects public health and our environment. We need to act quickly to make sure Congress doesn’t accept ANY cuts to the EPA and other agencies that protect our environment.

    Pulling that off will require organizing in a big way. We have teams meeting with staff on Capitol Hill now. But we need to ramp up grassroots efforts too — getting constituents calling and visiting offices and flooding inboxes with letters. Right now, that means using resources we don’t have.

    Can we count on your support? Thousands of people from all over the country are pitching in with $5, $10, $20 donations — some becoming LCV members for the very first time, and many making monthly contributions to help fight back. Anything you can pitch in can make a huge difference right now.

    We need to raise $250,000 by the end of March to keep our work going strong. If everyone reading this right now pitched in just $5, we’d blow through that goal in minutes. Remember — a donor is offering a triple match, so your contribution goes even further than usual if you give today.

    Triple your impact: Join the fight TODAY with a gift of $5 or more. We won’t win without your help »

    Lola, this is a fight we can win — thanks so much for being a part of it.

    Sincerely,

    Gene Karpinski

  6. I wanted to make sure you saw this — Trump just released his fiscal year 2020 federal budget, and he’s moving to DECIMATE environmental programs across agencies:

    EPA budget … slashed by $2.8 BILLION.
    Land and Water Conservation Fund … GUTTED.
    Climate research office … ELIMINATED.

    We need to mobilize NOW. The Land and Water Conservation Fund provides the resources for national, state, and local parks all over the country. It just got reauthorized in an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote, and Trump’s moving to gut it anyway.

    We need your help. We can shut down this budget proposal, but we need to get organizers on the ground, preparing protests across the country, and flooding congressional offices with calls and letters. Resources are running low and right now, we can’t do it all — not without you. Can you pitch in today?

    With so much on the line, a major donor is offering a TRIPLE MATCH for every gift to this campaign. The best thing you can do right now is to make an emergency donation and make triple the impact »

    I want you to know we CAN stop Trump’s budget before it goes any further. This is the third time we’ve taken Trump on over his budget and the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Last year, Trump and the GOP leadership in Congress let the Land and Water Conservation Fund expire — but with the help of more than 140,000 LCV members like you, LCV’s “Our Lands, Our Voice” drove an overwhelming effort to permanently reauthorize the program.

    We HAVE to do it again. The Land and Water Conservation Fund is our nation’s best parks program and has benefitted virtually EVERY county in the country. If we don’t act now, Trump’s budget would gut the program’s funding and decimate environmental protections.

    We have an environmental majority in the House right now, which means Trump can’t simply steamroll whatever priority he wants. But we need to act quickly to make sure Congress doesn’t accept ANY cuts to the EPA and other agencies that protect our environment.

    It’s up to us to make sure Trump and Congress doesn’t get away with choking off funding for critical programs like the Land and Water Conservation Fund.

    We need to raise $250,000 by the end of March to keep our work going strong. If everyone reading this right now pitched in just $5, we’d blow through that goal in minutes. Remember — a donor is offering a triple match, so your contribution goes even further than usual if you give today.

    Triple your impact: Join the fight TODAY with a gift of $5 or more. We won’t win without your help »

    Things will get unpredictable over the next few days as we continue to fight the Trump budget and ramp up efforts in the House and Senate. We’ll keep you posted on everything that’s moving — and the work we’re doing to protect our environment.

    Thank you for all of your support — we couldn’t do our work without you.

    Sincerely,

    Gene Karpinski
