Our state’s laws are based on the assumption that environmental destruction is tolerable because it is necessary to “doing business in Oregon.” To the contrary, the benefits of protecting environmental health exceeds the costs. It is time for a new vision and strategy to elevate the value of thriving ecosystems in all policy making.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”BEYOND TOXICS FIGHTS TO PROTECT PEOPLE AND ENVIRONMENT FROM TOXIC HARM BY” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1517208103548{padding-bottom: 20px !important;}”][vc_column_text]We work directly with communities to understand their concerns about environmental harm and explore long-term protections for water and wildlife. Collaborate with conservation groups, Beyond Toxics enriches the dialogue and strategies by providing Oregon-based data and a fresh perspective on the role of toxic trespass in environmental health.

How do we REMEDY THESE PROBLEMS?

  • We use GIS mapping to assess environmental damage and organize community-based environmental health research
  • Hold government accountable for environmental health and advocate and win policy Initiatives
  • Serve on statewide Policy Advisory Groups to shape rules and regulations
  • Lift up local voices and share people’s stories with media and decision-makers

  • Pollinator and beneficial insect protections
  • Analysis of pesticides in state-protected salmon habitat streams, including a critical look at invasive weed management.
  • Assessments of mining, energy, timber and agricultural practices that harm the environment
  • Embedding environmental health and human rights into air, water and forestry laws
