Donations Are Still DOUBLED

Yesterday we raised $1,945 from 17 donors. This was doubled to $3,890 thanks to the $10,000 doubling-pledge made by a “super angel” donor last Friday. Our new total is now $30,421 from 155 donors on our way to our goal of raising $180,000 from 1000 supporters by midnight on December 31st.

There’s still time to have double the impact! The next $5,462 donated will be doubled!

A huge thank you to everyone who has donated to the Fluoride Action Network’s 2023 budget. We rely heavily on this fundraiser the resources to fund 80+% of our work for the next year. Every donation and supporter is crucial to us, and we are grateful for all who fight to see our work continue until we’ve turned fluoridation into a relic of the past. We can only do it with your help!

How To Make A Tax-Deductible Donation

Dear Friends:

We have an incredible treat for you today. The Court has just made available the video recording of the most recent hearing in our federal lawsuit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) over the neurotoxicity of fluoridation chemicals. As promised, we wanted to make sure it was in your hands as soon as it was uploaded. This is the first footage from the trial that the Court has made available to the public.

In this video you will see our attorney, Michael Connett, argue successfully on behalf of our motion to end the stay on the trial and reopen discovery so attorneys and the Court could examine the final draft of the NTP report that was supposed to be published in May of 2022. You will also see the attorney for the EPA, Brandon Adkins, argue to keep the trial suspended, and argue against additional expert testimony on new evidence, and against the National Toxicology Program having to turn over their final draft from May. The Department of Justice–on behalf of the EPA–has since complied with the Court and turned over a copy of the unpublished NTP report, though it is under a protective order and not available to the public at this time.

To help understand what’s happening, I suggest reading our coverage of the hearing:
