Groups and concerned citizens in more than 42 states have held media events and actions. For instance, we held “Corporate Pizza Tax” events. People delivered pizza to the district offices of 52 U.S. Senators who voted against polluters pay fees. Why? To highlight the expired Superfund corporate tax only cost corporations the price of a pizza, or $12 for every $10,000 in profits.

Get a Daily Dose of Superfund
Superfund365, A Site-A-Day is an activist website that visits one toxic site in the federal Superfund every day. It started the journey in New York and is working its way across the country. In the end, the archive will consist of 365 visualizations of some of the worst toxic sites in the U.S, and video interviews with people involved with or impacted by Superfund.
