Stroller Brigade for Safer Chemicals

October 29, 2013
Washington, District of Columbia

Time: Gather at 9:30 am; Press conference at 10:00 am
Location: U.S. Capitol Lawn, Washington D.C. (RSVP for exact location)

Join PSR and the Safer Chemicals Healthy Families Coalition on Tuesday, October 29th in a parent-and-child "Stroller Brigade" for stronger U.S. laws against toxic chemicals.

Chemicals in consumer products are regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), passed in 1976. Unfortunately, TSCA has been woefully inadequate in keeping us safe, banning only five toxic chemicals in 37 years.

Congress is now considering legislation to replace TSCA -- but the proposed "Chemical Safety Improvement Act," in its current form, doesn't ensure the health and safety of pregnant women, children, workers, or vulnerable communities. Is this really "Improvement"?

We want a law that actually protects vulnerable populations, ensures the EPA can take action on the most hazardous chemicals, and moves us towards safer alternatives.

Urge Congress to bring real health-protective reform by joining us on October 29th at the stroller brigade.
