Water is essential for both humans and wildlife. Having clean and abundant water is a public health issue and our lawmakers must ensure that all Floridians have access to clean water. Our lawmakers must vigilantly push for clean water solutions to meet monumental challenges that face Florida, including climate change and population growth. Our water issues must be a top priority of the Florida Legislature in 2021. Sign this petition to help protect our water!
We’re asking Governor DeSantis to order all energy utilities in Florida to immediately suspend all power disconnections for non-payment, reconnect households that were disconnected before the state of emergency was declared on March 9, 2020, and waive associated late fees and other fines for their residential customers. We need your help.
Last Call: Say NO BUILD
On September 29, the Florida Department of Transportation released the draft Task Force reports for the three proposed M-CORES toll roads, only allowing 15 days of public comment.
The draft final reports fail to demonstrate a need for the roads and they validate what we already know: we need more data and meaningful public input.
Thousands of Floridians have spoken out against the roads to ruin. Now is the last chance for you to say, "No Build!" Take action using our easy email form now.

The three toll roads will slice through some of the best remaining natural and agricultural areas, permanently severing connectivity within critical wildlife corridors.
Every day Florida faces threats from air and water pollution, an exploding population, and a changing climate. With so many immediate and pressing priorities, our state legislature should be investing in ways to ensure a healthier environment and brighter future for all, rather than spending precious resources on these "roads to ruin."
ADD YOUR NAME: Put the Brakes on Toll Road Process
The three toll roads will destroy our water, wildlife, public health, and rural communities.
Right now, as the COVID-19 pandemic threatens Florida’s public health and economy, the Florida Department of Transportation is moving full-steam ahead with the dangerous and deadly M-CORES toll roads. Already a sham process, FDOT is now relying on webinars that are inaccessible for many Florida citizens. Discussions about irreplaceable natural areas that may be destroyed are being conducted during private phone calls, not public meetings. This an unacceptable form of bad government.
The quality of our environment directly impacts our quality of life. It’s going to take a movement of dedicated people just like you to demand safeguards for our most precious remaining natural places. The good news is that movement has already started.
