Take Action

Tell Congress you won’t support phony chemicals policy reform -- only real, health-protective reform.


Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility is primarily a volunteer-based organization. From issues committees, to our Speakers' Bureau Listed, to newspaper opinion pieces, to coordinating and assisting at workshops and events, WPSR depends on the expertise, time and generosity of its members. If you would like to volunteer your time to creating a healthy, sustainable Washington State, simply click on a person's name below to be connected to their email address, or call the office at 206-547-2630, and ask for Linda.
