How we do our work 

Beyond Toxics works to see that job growth does not, in reality, lead to pollution growth. When an Oregon community faces a potentially harmful activity or facility, we can help them address the risk for harm by:

  • Working to ensure a strong consideration of environmental justice and everyone’s right to clean air, water, land and food.
  • Exercising the community’s right-to-know about what is released into their air, water and soil.
  • Employing alternative assessments that lead to toxics-use reduction and elimination.
  • Infusing the precautionary principle into all policy decisions, at every level of government.
  • Helping neighborhoods and communities get educated and organized by holding town halls, forums, film series and rallies.
  • Building empowerment through trainings, actions and working groups.

Communities are often confronted with a false dichotomy: choose between jobs or clean air; economic growth or a healthy environment. This is an outdated paradigm.

Won’t you join us in imagining, and working for, a world beyond toxics?
