Will you help us raise $15,000 by May 30th to make toys and products safer? Donate Today!
The clock is ticking! Congress must quickly finish its work before lawmakers turn their attention to the elections--and that means they must finalize a strong product safety reform bill.
But President Bush just announced his opposition to many of the best provisions. With only a short time left to craft a final bill, he wants to make sure it does as little as possible.
The recalls continue unabated--nearly 10 million products all told in the first four months of this year, and 1.3 million toys due to lead. Bush opposes a requirement that all manufacturers test children's products before they reach our shelves. He also opposes a public web site that would give you more timely information about unsafe products.
Consumers Union and the CU Action Fund are pulling out all the stops. In the past few days:
- Consumers Union released a new report on the nearly 10 million dangerous products recalled since the holidays;
- you sent thousands of messages to members of the key committee that must finalize this bill; and
- some of you attended a rally at the Capitol in Washington.
You may not live in D.C., where we held the rally, or in the district of a conference committee member, but you can still help us get a strong bill passed with a donation right now!
Your contribution to the CU Action Fund will help us use every tool we have to battle industry opponents and the President and help lawmakers give you the strongest product safety bill.
Will you please help ensure that we have the resources we need to do this crucial work?
With your support, we can continue to ramp up activity on Not In My Cart and other critical campaigns, and give you the power to choose safe products all year long.
Thank you so much for your generous contribution.

The media still refuse to cover the outrageous Pentagon propaganda scandal. We need your help to place this ad in Washington news outlets by Friday so we can force all 535 members of Congress, their staff and other D.C. influentials to hear this message:
We won't let the Pentagon -- and its Big Media enablers -- get away with manipulating and deceiving the public.
Congress and the media must know we're not backing down. The shocking -- and very likely illegal -- campaign that turned "independent" military analysts into on-air Pentagon propagandists and Iraq war apologists must be investigated.
And Big Media's shameful failure to cover the story -- and hold itself accountable for its own complicity -- must end.
Your contribution today will help the Free Press Action Fund achieve both goals. We need to raise $10,000 in the next 24 hours to run this ad and publicly turn up the heat on Congress to act.
You and other Free Press supporters have already helped mobilize hundreds of thousands of Americans to express their outrage over this propaganda scandal and media cover-up. Your contribution today will help us put even more pressure where it counts most: on Congress and Big Media.
