Beyond Toxics collaborates with social justice organizations and vulnerable low-income and minority residents to empower communities to take action and participate in decision-making. We assist neighborhoods that are disproportionally affected by higher concentrations of industrial air pollution. MORE->

Safe Public Places Project
Our project calls for meeting significant reduction goals in the amount of pesticides used in parks, in and around public buildings and on public roads all throughout the state of Oregon. TAKE ACTION: have you signed the Safe Public Places endorsement form yet?
Human Rights and Chemical Exposure
Framing pesticide exposures as a violation of basic human rights is an original and pioneering grassroots action that will give voice to Oregonians who continue to suffer from unwanted pesticide exposure. See the latest videos documenting stories of chemical trespass in Oregon.
Rural residents and many farmers are facing significant dangers from exposure to pesticide spray drift and run-off into nearby streams and rivers. We’re helping them fight back!
Healthy Air Oregon (HAO)
HAO is an action-oriented, public education project bringing businesses, governments and individuals together to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gases. Effective outcomes of our HAO work include the passage of Oregon’s No Top-Off Law and the adoption of No Idling policies by governments, agencies and businesses throughout Oregon. HAO is a proven solution for cleaning our air and reducing health risks associated with polluted air. MORE->
