"Administrator Scott Pruitt is unfit to head the EPA and must resign immediately. Since taking office, he has jeopardized the health and safety of our children and families, attacked lifesaving measures against dangerous air pollution, and ignored how climate change disproportionately impacts communities of color. 
On top of his refusal to uphold the mission of the agency, he is under 18 independent federal investigations for abusing taxpayer money and making unethical decisions at the EPA. We need an administrator that will uphold the EPA's mission and protect the health and safety of our most vulnerable communities, not line the pockets of his industry allies."

"From poor coastal towns facing more severe storms to urban neighborhoods suffering from increasing heat waves and toxic air pollution, communities of color and low-income communities are seeing first-hand the impacts of climate change. Across the country, low-income and African American communities are disproportionately impacted by Administrator Pruitt's rollbacks of lifesaving climate and health protections."

"As members of the faith community, it's our moral obligation to protect the most vulnerable: the voiceless and the marginalized. It’s also our faithful duty to be good stewards of the environment from coastal shores to rural farmlands to our urban areas. It's time to boot Pruitt so this administration can stop denying our communities cleaner air, healthier environments and longer lives."

Green the Church represents the voices of the country's African American faith community, helping churches serve as centers of environmental and economic resilience and engage congregations in the fight against environmental justice and climate change.
