Positive progress: On July 3rd, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine officially requested that President Biden issue a Major Presidential Disaster Declaration for the East Palestine train derailment and chemical disaster. Now, President Biden must approve the request.
We are urgently asking you to sign this petition addressing the continued humanitarian crisis in East Palestine, Ohio, and the surrounding communities.
Only President Biden has the power to approve Ohio Governor Mike Dewine’s request for a disaster declaration in East Palestine. By approving the request, President Biden would enable the federal government to give residents the financial relief and comprehensive environmental testing that they desperately require.
