New York, NY – Today’s White House budget proposal, “America First: A Budget Blueprint to Make America Great Again” included many cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that could harm environmental justice and indigenous communities. In response, over 60 environmental justice organizations and advocates, including WE ACT, sent a letter to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, denouncing the proposed cuts, especially those related to critical environmental justice issues. The leaders have also requested a meeting with the Administrator.
