A chemical train derailed in eastern Ohio, spilling hazardous chemicals that caught on fire, endangering the surrounding community. Families are wondering if their water is safe to drink and if the air will make them sick.

Chemical trains carrying dangerous materials crisscross through our communities with few safety regulations — threatening the environment and our health. We’re calling on the Biden administration to protect us from dangerous chemical trains and ensure we have the right to know what toxic materials are on board.
