Hi Ellen - here is an email invite and a flyer - please distribute to your contacts!
Please Join Us for a Conversation on
Chemical Exposures & Public Health in Our Communities
You can help develop a national action agenda on the use and management of chemicals that is safe and healthy for all people.
The Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County invites you to a
Community Conversation on Public Health & Chemical Exposures
Wednesday, June 23rd
5:00 pm-7:00 pm
Renton Community Center <http://maps.google.com/maps/place?rls=com.microsoft:en-us&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=Renton+Community+Center&fb=1&gl=us&hq=Community+Center&hnear=Renton,+WA&cid=11761918210416667209>
1715 SE Maple Valley Highway, 98057-3900
Your input, concerns, and ideas on chemical exposures will give our communities a voice on national chemical policy. Your comments will be submitted to the National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures – an initiative of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). These agencies are responsible for public health policy and preventing harmful exposures and diseases from toxic materials. Our community’s feedback will be used to develop a national action agenda on how the nation can better protect people from harmful chemical exposures.
Learn more about the National Conversation at: www.atsdr.cdc.gov/nationalconversation <http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/nationalconversation> .
We invite you to participate and make your voice heard, to help generate fresh ideas, and to share useful strategies on improving federal agencies and laws to protect the public from harmful chemical exposures. This discussion is timely because federal agencies are reviewing their chemical management policies and Congress is considering legislation to reform the federal Toxic Substances Control Act <http://www.epa.gov/lawsregs/laws/tsca.html> .
Many of you have an interest in environmental and public health issues as concerned individuals, community activists, first responders, local government agencies, business leaders, leaders of faith-based groups, elected officials, and planners. We encourage input from anyone with a personal and/or professional interest in environmental or public health issues.
Please join us on June 23rd from 5:00-7:00 pm at the Renton Community Center!
