The federal government has traditionally worked hard to ensure that future generations enjoy an ever-improving quality of life. In the past three years, the Trump administration has backslid on that progress, putting our children—and future generations—in harm's way.

Endangering Generations shows how the Trump administration's decisions or inaction on key issues are affecting the ability for some children to have their basic needs met, failing to protect children from contaminants in their food, water, and the air they breathe, and putting generations in peril of the dramatic impacts of climate change.

We need elected officials to use science to ensure children are prioritized and protected. Our country's future depends on it.
