Call to Action for Clean Car Standards from the Alliance for Nurses for Health Environments

The Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments is looking for nurses to speak out in defense of clean air protections.  The Trump administration is trying to reverse one of the nation’s most successful programs to clean up air pollution and fight climate change: cleaner cars standards.

  • The US EPA and the NHTSA have announced they will hold three hearings on its proposal that the health community strongly opposes.  See letters here and hereHere is the information on the three hearings:

  • It is critical that the nursing voice is heard to highlight the impacts of these harmful proposals on human health.  If you'd like to speak at the hearings, please sign up to save your spot now by registering here.  Indicate your preference for morning or afternoon speaking slot in the “Accommodation” box at the bottom of the registration page.  Please feel free to reach out to us for any questions, such as if you'd like to attend, but have never spoken at a hearing before.  We are happy to help by providing talking points and helping with testimony if needed.  If you do sign-up please let me know by sending an email to cara@envirn.org

Join michigan solar celebrations!

What do Michigan churches, breweries, schools, and households have in common? They’re all going solar!

More than 11,000 Michiganders now work in solar and renewable energy. Sunshine is an increasingly mainstream energy resource nationwide, and for good reason: solar lowers electric bills, gives people the freedom to take control of their own energy needs, and reduces toxic air pollution from burning coal and gas.

Want to learn more?

Come join us for a series of solar celebrations to hear from Michigan businesses, homeowners, churches and others who already benefit from solar. Have a bite, see the solar installation, ask questions, and discuss how we can work together to expand solar access in Michigan. Find events near you…
