Petition Statement

For the sake of all Americans’ health and safety, please vote against Michael Dourson’s confirmation.
There are currently 153 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

Trump’s latest appointee, Michael Dourson, spent his career helping Big Tobacco, Teflon makers, and other corporations downplay the risks of their chemicals. He doesn’t belong at the EPA where he would have the power to greenlight toxics like asbestos, lead, and BPA —substances that have been linked to cancer, delayed mental development, and major reproductive harm.

Trump is showing again that our health doesn’t matter to him, especially the people of color and low-income communities who will be hurt the most by gutting our toxics laws. Sign the petition to tell the nomination committee chairs to #DumpDourson.
