Protect Our Water Alliance (POWA) is an independent grassroots initiative started by a group of concerned citizen activists from varied backgrounds. Its purpose is to raise awareness about environmental health concerns regarding fluoride and fluorine compounds, and potentially other water- and toxicity-related issues, using electronic campaigns to inform and inspire individuals and organizations throughout the United States and beyond. So far, POWA campaigns have challenged the wisdom of the public policy and practice of water fluoridation.
At the present time, POWA has suspended its campaigns. Our petition, “Re-examining Fluoridation”, amassed signatures from approximately 11,350 individuals and from 50 organizations! We are grateful to all who signed and for their heartfelt comments. As this petition supported the efforts of the EPA Union of Professionals to call on Congress to conduct a full investigation into the public policy of water fluoridation, and to issue a moratorium on the practice while this investigation is taking place, we have forwarded these petition signatures to the EPA Union Headquarters in Washington, DC for them to use as they see fit.
We have suspended our current campaigns due to changes in circumstances among the POWA team members as well as the start of other similar activist initiatives. POWA itself will remain and Alliance members (signatories who asked for updates) will still receive occasional informative emails. Meanwhile, POWA will be regrouping and expects to sponsor other campaigns at a later time. If you would like to sign a different petition concerning fluoridation, please go to www.fluoridealert.org (the Fluoride Action Network site).
