  • Environmental Health

    We are exposed to environmental toxicants every day; in our food, water, the air we breathe, and the personal care products we absorb through our skin. For some of these chemicals, such as lead and mercury, there is no known threshold of "safe" exposure, while for others we lack even basic information about risks of exposure.

  • Nuclear Power

    Current goals for the Washington and Oregon PSR Joint Nuclear Power Task Force include closing the Columbia Generating Station, the Northwest's only remaining nuclear power plant, and blocking construction of new nuclear power plants in our region.
