Women for a Healthy Environment

Announcing a local event that is taking place along the North Shore of Pittsburgh, PA on August 10th, 2011. Women for a Healthy Environment is working with regional organizations and states across the country to participate in a National Day of Action on August 10th.
Parents and kids across the country will come together for a national day of action to ask our senators to support a policy that protects us from chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, asthma, & other serious illnesses.
We shouldn't have to worry about toxic chemicals in our homes, drinking water and environment. Join parents across the country in this fun event.
Bring your children's favorite toys! We'll have an XRF analyzer gun on hand to scan the metal content of children's toys, jewelry and electronics. We'll also be providing super hero capes for young children to wear so they can ask their Senators to be heroes for safe chemicals!
Please join us at 12:00 pm (noon) on August 10th at:
Mr. Rogers Statue located across from Heinz Field on Allegheny Avenue. From here we will walk along the North Shore to the fountains behind Hyde Park restaurant.
Strollers welcomed and encouraged!
Parents, grandparents and caregivers will have the opportunity to hear from local experts, participate in a letter writing campaign to Senator Casey, and have their children's products scanned, so you can learn what toxins might lurk in your toy chest.
Please contact us at 412-420-2290 or michelle@womenforahealthyenvironment.org to reserve a parking space!
Can't join us? Please take two minutes to call Senator Casey's office and ask him to be our hero and support the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011. He can be reached at the following numbers: Phone: (202) 224-6324, Toll Free: (866) 802-2833, Fax: (202) 228-0604.
