Hear from local experts about the chemicals in your community, and what you can do about them! In fall 2009, the US House of Representatives passed legislation that could protect over 110 million Americans that live near chemical plants. The Senate will consider this legislation this year.
In California, 344 chemical plants each put 10,000 people at risk, and over a dozen plants here in Los Angeles threaten over 27 million people. Safer alternatives exist, and 28 plants in our state have already converted to safer processes.
Join us in Torrance to hear about work being done in the Los Angeles area, California, and the US to manage toxic substances and transition to safer chemical practices. Learn more about how you can take action and get plugged into both local and national efforts.
