It was just two months ago that hundreds of moms, cancer survivors, nurses and concerned individuals gathered at the Capitol for the National Stroller Brigade. The success of this event helped show Congress that we’re tired of waiting and we want new laws that protect our families from toxic chemicals.
If the Stroller Brigade was any indication of the impact a small, but tenacious group of individuals can have, then bring it on! Let’s show Congress that there are millions of Americans fed up with toxic chemicals and we’re demanding they do something about it.
