Today marks seven months since the train disaster in East Palestine, Ohio, and two months since Ohio Governor Mike DeWine heeded our campaign’s call to request a Major Disaster Declaration from President Biden. So far, the President's office has not taken action.
In that time, residents have continued to suffer from bloody noses, burning throats, nausea, and in some cases, life-threatening health conditions. Scientists say the poisonous chemicals could stick around for decades.
It’s up to us to make sure that POTUS hears East Palestine's call. 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.
Join us, and urge President Biden to take action at only.one/east-palestine.
