Tell the Senate: Protect Our Families from Harmful Toxic Chemicals

The nation's primary chemical safety law is grossly outdated. It has failed to protect our communities from harmful toxic chemicals putting our families at risk of being exposed to dangerous, cancer-causing chemicals. We must hold the chemical industry accountable and pass new laws to safeguard the health and safety of our families.

Message

Petition: Pass the Safe Chemicals Act Now!

Dear Senator,

Your action is needed to protect American families from toxic chemicals. I urge you to pass the Safe Chemicals Act today.

In recent decades, the incidence of early puberty, certain childhood and adult cancers, infertility, and learning and developmental disabilities has increased -- sometimes at alarming rates. Scientific studies continue to demonstrate that the toxic chemicals we are exposed to in our every day products can significantly increase the risk of developing these and other diseases and disorders.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) shows that exposure to toxic chemicals begins in the womb. Most pregnant American women have numerous toxic chemicals in their bodies, some of which are known to have adverse impacts on the health of their developing babies. Our children are born already contaminated with toxic chemicals that can cause health problems for the rest of their lives. This is unacceptable.

Congress has an obligation to pass a law that will protect our health and our environment from harmful toxic chemicals.

We call on Congress to make the right choice for America's families. Pass the Safe Chemicals Act now.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
