Today, many people are exposed to poisonous chemicals at work and in products. These dangerous chemicals are treated as if they’re safe until proven to harm people. The Just Transition Alliance is working to change this broken system.

We are actively engaged in national and statewide coalitions working to reform how chemicals are regulated so they are proven safe before being allowed in consumer products and the workplace.

Non-toxic chemicals and manufacturing processes can and should be used. Now is the time to make this shift.
