Project Inundate the EPA

Thank you to the 3000 people who have volunteered for Moms Across America!

Together, we educate and empower mothers and others with actions and solutions to create healthy communities!

We are down to the wire with the EPA and glyphosate. This past week the EPA appealed to the Supreme Court to extend the deadline for their decision on whether or not to renew or revoke the license glyphosate. Preposterous. They have had 13 years to review glyphosate.

In the meantime, people are getting sick and dying. Our pets, pollinators, babies, and neighbors are dying. Our health care costs are skyrocketing.

Professor Emeritus at Perdue University, a sixty-year plant pathologist Don Huber PhD. said, “Glyphosate herbicides make DDT look like mouthwash.” 

Three hundred million pounds of these toxic chemicals are sprayed in America on our food crops and communities every year. The CDC found glyphosate in 80% of the 2,310 American urine samples. We are in a health crisis primarily due to these toxins. 

This is a historic moment. This is the time in history when the EPA will decide to affect millions of lives and wildlife species. Recently, the Supreme Court rejected the EPA’s interim glyphosate approval and ordered the  EPA to review available science and come to a decision by 10月 1, 2022.

We only have a little over two months to communicate with the EPA and urge them to do the right thing.

When 10,000 moms called the EPA regarding our findings of glyphosate in breastmilk, urine, and tap water none years ago, one of the more relatable staffers said to me:

“We encourage your moms to communicate with us by any means necessary."

Let’s do that! Let’s INUNDATE the EPA!

To me, this person’s invitation means that some in the EPA want to do the right thing, but they need to hear from us.

The EPA needs to see considerable public outcry to make the necessary changes to protect the environment. We all know they get significant pressure from the chemical companies to approve their harmful chemicals and cover up the harm. We are up against a Goliath. We need many “Davids,” or moms and supporters,  to win this fight for food safety.

Will you please pick a method of volunteering and commit to one for the next three weeks?

We want to get all communications to them before 9月 1, as we are assuming they may have made their decision by then and will be merely drafting the wording for their announcement after that.

Our main message: revoke the license of glyphosate and disallow the spraying of all toxicants as drying agents (desiccants) on our food and feed crops!


Volunteering opportunities:

1. Be a Caller. Call the EPA every work day for a month and give them a reason to revoke the license of glyphosate. Be positive and thankful for the work they are doing! We have a list of reasons here. Thank them for listening and for the courage it will take to do the right thing. Call the director Elissa Reaves at (202)566-1925 and the head of the EPA, Michael Regan, at (202) 564-4700. You have about 30 seconds to leave a voice mail for Regan.

2. Be an Emailer. Email the EPA every work day for a month. Give them multiple personal reasons ( with a unique subject line each time)  why they need to revoke the license of glyphosate and stop allowing all poisons to be used on our food. Thank them for their courage and dedication. Email the director, Elissa Reaves,  [email protected], the Acting Deputy Director, [email protected], and the Head of the EPA, Michael Regan[email protected] and the team listed below*.

3. Be a Faxer. Download the program Faxage.com (a small monthly fee) and send a FAX with a reason to revoke the glyphosate license every morning for every business day straight into the offices of the decision-makers. Remind them of their mission and thank them for fulfilling it. List of reasons here. Fax Elissa Reaves and the Pesticide Re-Evaluation Division at 703-308-8005 https://www.faxage.com

Use your own words and derive inspiration from the many reasons to revoke the glyphosate license here.


4. Be a Mailer. Buy a stack of envelopes and stamps and send a hard copy, old school letter to the EPA every business day for a month. Handwriting and children’s notes are incredibly impactful. Thank them for their hard work and dedication. Write to:

Environmental Protection Agency
Office of Pesticide Programs, Mail Code 7506C
Pesticide Re-Evaluation RMIB I
1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW Washington DC 20460



5. Be a Tweeter. Every weekday Tweet a message to the EPA. Tell them why they need to revoke the glyphosate license, not just restrict it, and why they need to stop allowing all toxicants to be sprayed on our food. List of reasons here. Link https://twitter.com/EPA @EPA, @EPAMIchaelRegan


6. Be a Social Media Scout. Every weekday on Facebook and Instagram, search for one or more topics - “cancer, autism, infertility, liver disease, kidney disease, or mental illness or depression” and post a SOLUTION! Ask people to join our campaign to get the EPA to stop allowing the spraying of carcinogenic chemicals that also causes neurotoxicity, infertility, and liver and kidney damage to our FOOD. Thank them for being a part of this historical call to action!

Please give them the link to sign our letter to the CDC, EPA, and Congress. Link to One Click campaign: https://oneclickpolitics.global.ssl.fastly.net/messages/edit?promo_id=15134


7. Be a Gift Quilter. Make a gift to Tom Vilsack and Michael Regan. Honey attracts more bees than vinegar. We want a meeting with the head of the USDA, Tom Vilsack, and the EPA, Michael Regan. One way to do that might be to present each with a red, white, and blue quilt that includes hearts from our moms and children. Are you willing to be on the team to gather and assemble quilt squares? Sign up by sending an email to [email protected] today.


8. Be a School Lunch Champion. Help us deal with herbicides, heavy metals, and nutrients. Our government provides our children with 30 million school meals from GMO crops ( sprayed with glyphosate) daily. Be a part of our team to buy, bring home, freeze, and mail a school lunch to a lab. Donate or Be a part of the team to fundraise the $1000 needed per sample. We need to raise $45,000 by 9月 1! Contact [email protected] to get directions and be a part of this team.


Do you have other ideas? We want to hear from you! Most important is that every one of us gets creative, courageous, and makes a considerable contribution to current and future generations by COMMITTING to taking one action a day for a month before the EPA’s decision about glyphosate and many other toxic chemicals. 

Let’s not look back and say we wish we could have, would shoulda...no matter what they decide...

Let’s look back and say WE DID IT!

We did our BEST!

Please join us for our Moms Connect Calls on Monday (get the invitation link when you sign up for our email alerts) to get in touch, answer your questions, or share your story and ideas. We love to connect with our supporters all across the country!

With Love and Gratitude,

Zen Honeycutt and Moms Across America Team

Three thousand volunteers all across the nation - we can do this!!!

Note: Please note - it is always more effective to use your own words when communicating with our regulatory agencies. They tend not to count it if it is cut and pasted from an organization. So please add a few sentences, tweak the wording or write it yourself.

Click here to sign our letter - but also, every day, do something - one thing above to INUNDATE the EPA!

    The phone numbers for the director Elissa Reaves and the Acting Deputy director Tim Kiely are NOT IN SERVICE. Please correct.
    Also the recording for Michael Regan gives you about 30 seconds to make a statement. Be succinct.
