OFA volunteers petition to protect our environment

The Environmental Protection Agency is taking a big step forward in preventing carbon pollution—and OFA volunteers are there building support in the fight against climate change.

In a nationwide Day of Action, supporters spread the word about the EPA's plan and collected signatures to show the EPA that Americans support these new standards.
