People of faith act to stop Ford Motor Company’s efforts to weaken our environmental protections
In 2011, Ford Motor Company was part of a historic breakthrough in cooperation on climate solutions when the company supported the Clean Car Standards, which would raise fuel efficiency standards to an average of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. This represents a 50 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, in addition to reductions in air pollution. With 24 million Americans—including more than six million children—suffering from asthma, these standards safeguard the health of vulnerable communities.
Under the current Administration, Ford began lobbying for a review of the standards, asking for “additional flexibility” in meeting the standards. It is unconscionable for the company to renege on their commitment to cleaner cars now, after the American taxpayers loaned Ford billions of dollars to invest in advanced vehicle manufacturing in 2009.
As people of faith, committed to environmental and climate justice, we call on Ford Motor Company to stand by the Clean Car Standards. Please add your voice by clicking on one of the links below.
We delivered a scroll of signatures in a meeting with Ford Motor Company. We will continue to gather names as we will be delivering updated petitions to local Ford Dealerships across the country.
