Did you know millions of Americans struggle to access clean water every day?

Pollution and chemical contamination has impacted the drinking water of U.S. soldiers, public school students, and families who can lack the ability to purchase and use water filtration tools.

Moreover, currently proposed pieces of legislation could make that problem much worse.

The EPA hopes to roll back clean water protections, and by doing so, giving companies loopholes to dump hazardous material into our sources of water. This kind of pollution harm our country’s rivers, lakes, and groundwater supplies.

Let’s use #SaludTues on Twitter on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, to tweet relevant information about current issues in clean water access and what is being done to solve the problem:

We’ll be discussing topics that we hope you will share your stories and experiences, which will include:

  • What is the current state of clean water access in America?
  • How are government agencies helping or hurting clean water access?
  • What are ways Latinos and all Americans can act in this issue?
  • Where can people turn for accurate clean water information?
