Description

We will be working throughout the 7th Congressional Dist. to educate and empower citizens to protect their environment and community through lobbying elected representatives and conversations with friends and neighbors. We focus on a variety of issues including, currently, the Great Lakes, Great Michigan campaign to protect our water resources from corporate control and public health concerns stemming from toxic chemicals in products. Volunteering for Clean Water is the perfect way to affect change and promote the health of our environment and community.
