Sign here now! Demand Norfolk Southern stay accountable!

In February, a Norfolk Southern train derailed in East Palestine, Ohio. You probably saw the same news footage: the huge fireball, the thick black smoke, the families evacuating their homes.

This disaster is just another example of big corporations putting profits over people and the environment.

Norfolk Southern neglected safety and staffing upgrades, opting instead to engage in stock buybacks and layoffs — brushing aside the concerns of union workers.

The derailment was a tragedy. It was a horror story. It ruined lives.

It was also entirely preventable, and there must be accountability.

Add your name and publicly demand Norfolk Southern take full responsibility for the harm.

This isn't just an accident that happened and is now over.

The consequences of Norfolk Southern's negligence will continue to affect the health of the people and environment of East Palestine and surrounding communities for decades.

Will you sign my petition and demand Norfolk Southern take accountability for their actions until East Palestine is made whole again?

Let's get back to work!
