Yesterday was Mother’s Day. All across the US, mothers were treated to breakfasts, gifts, outings, and a potpourri of goodies- I hope so! I’m sure Sunday was a real treat. But this year, let’s honor mothers in a way that endures beyond one Sunday in May. Our movement is filled with very active and concerned […]
States have been where most of the action to protect people from toxic chemicals has happened in recent years. So the the Udall-Vitter bill is rightly drawing fire for limiting the ability of states to act in several ways.
The fact that we were delivering a petition excited us that it was not just our voices we were bringing to Washington D.C. but many other parents, aunt, uncles, grandparents, and other concerned people.

The words “Fast Track” keep appearing on my computer screen. Facebook, Twitter, news stories. I assumed at first it was a hot new fitness routine, turns out is a bill moving through Congress that affects everyone in this country and although obscure, highly important. Our coalition recently signed in on opposition to the Fast Track […]
Last night our twitter chat with Leah Segedie of Bookieboo LLC. and owner of Mamavation.com was a success as we discussed the need for real reform of our toxic chemical laws. We reached over 14 million people in just 90 minutes! We were trending nationally and had the opportunity to connect with so many different people […]
