To help combat the narrative being slung by those who want to give polluters free reign, American Federation of Government Employees Local 3911 is asking the American public, “Why do you love the EPA?” in their Love Letters to the EPA contest – open now through September 1, 2017.
“The EPA has faced intense scrutiny this year as the President has rolled out his plans for the agency,” said AFGE Local 3911 President Antony Tseng, “We want the American people to tell us why they don’t want to see the EPA dismantled, and why they want us to continue to protect our citizens for years to come,” he added.
The contest is open to individuals who are United States citizens, and residents of the United States or a U.S. Territory, who are not employees or former employees of the EPA or their immediate families, and are not members of Local 3911 or their immediate families. Eligible contestants are being asked to submit a video – up to two minutes in length – about why they don’t want to see the President expose future generations to an environment that is hazardous to their health.
More information about the Love Letters to the EPA contest can be found on www.afge.org/LL2EPA and by following #LL2EPA on Facebook and Twitter. Winners will be announced in October 2017.
