What have we learned in the two years since Fukushima?
Join us for a two day forum featuring speakers, panel discussions and video presentations. We will look what is happening at Fukushima and what threats we face in the northwest.
Featured speakers include Beverly Findlay-Kaneko (Families for Safe Energy), representatives of Oregon PSR, Oregon Sierra Club, No Nukes NW, University of Washington, and Hanford Challenge.
The Toxic Free Kids and Families Act (House Bill 1294) will help give your families every opportunity to thrive and improve the environment for the next generation by removing cancer-causing flame-retardants from children’s products and furniture in our homes. It also prevents industry from replacing these chemicals with equally harmful substitutes.
Please CALL your senators TODAY and tell them you support HB 1294. You may reach them by dialing the Legislative Hotline: 1-800-562-6000.
Primary sponsors are Sen. Sharon Nelson (D-Maury Island) and Rep. Kevin Van De Wege (D-Sequim)
