When & Where
Californian's for a Healthy and Green Economy (CHANGE)
CHANGE is a growing coalition of environmental health, policy, labor,
environmental justice, interfaith, and other organizations who are
working to create a better system for regulating toxic chemicals in
Community voices, especially low-income and communities of color, are vital to the process of determining how chemicals should be regulated in California.
Workers, low income and communities of color are disproportionately-impacted by the health effects of chemicals in the environment and in products. We recognize that these efforts will only be worthwhile if community voices are at the table helping craft solutions to the problem. We are in the process of bringing more communities of color to participate in the process and invite you to join us.
