Environmental justice: From our ancestors to our children

"The fight for a livable planet and the fight for social justice are one and the same. The struggle for a stable climate, for clean air and water must begin in places like South Valley that have long paid the price for others’ wealth and comfort. And its success depends on building the power and prosperity of people in marginalized communities — so that no one’s home is a dumping ground."
- Richard Moore (co-coordinator of the Environmental Justice Health Alliance for Chemical Policy Reform, co-coordinator of Los Jardines Institute (The Gardens Institute) in Albuquerque, N.M., and co-chair of the White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council) Read More

Dollar stores offer bargain prices - and toxic products.

When dollar stores sell products containing toxic chemicals, that expose only adds to the multiple sources of toxic pollution felt in communities like Mossville, LA, and other communities of color and low-income communities where chemical hazards and pollution are concentrated.

Court Upholds Ban on Phthalate Chemicals in Toys for Now

In 2016, the Environmental Justice Health Alliance for Chemical Policy Reform, NRDC, and Breast Cancer Prevention Partners sued the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to force the agency to address toxic phthalate chemcials in children's products. On March 1, a federal appeals court left in place the resulting ban on several phthalates by rejecting most of the arguments made by the chemical industry opposing the ban, but also found flaws in the agency’s rulemaking process. It gave the agency an opportunity to fix those errors. Read More
