Don’t Prevent Council on Environmental Quality From Doing its Job

Target: President Donald Trump

Goal: Do not uproot environmental advisors from their longtime headquarters.

The Trump administration is uprooting all of its environmental advisors from their headquarters, scattering the team and effectively preventing them from doing their jobs. The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) will lose its main conference room, so even though some CEQ staffers will stay in adjoining townhouses, it remains clear that the functionality of the protections in place for our environment are an extremely low priority for President Trump, and that those protections will no longer have the same influence on policy and decision-making for our country.

Although the size and relative power of the CEQ has varied since it was created half a century ago, it has always had a key role in implementing the environmental agenda of the White House, and coordinating relevant decisions among different agencies. However, this dismantling of the Council’s home base and the fact that its website was taken down right after Trump took office (and remains blank still) is evidence that this administration is completely disregarding the importance of protecting our environment. Sign below to demand the return of the Council on Environmental Quality’s headquarters.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

The Council on Environmental Quality is an absolutely essential department that must be able to function at its best. The preservation and protection of our environment must be a concern of the upmost importance for the sake of our country, our standard of living, and our children.

The Council on Environmental Quality has worked from its headquarters, which includes its main conference room, for half a century. To tear this away and to scatter the staffers is to disregard the importance of the work they do, and prevent them from doing it effectively. I urge you to value our environment the way it should be valued, and to return the CEQ to its headquarters.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
