Women vs. Toxic Chemicals
Broadcast on 2016/01/16 (PT)
Erin Switalski, Executive Director, Women’s Voices for the Earth
All those in favor of a toxic free future, please say “aye.” Ready for this to start your new year off healthy? Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE) was formed by a group of visionary women leaders in Missoula, Montana in 1995. Seeing that many environmental organizations at the time failed to include women in leadership positions and did not fully recognize the systemic connections between health, class, race, and the environment, WVE sought to create a new environmental organization led by women. Their incredibly important mission? To amplify women’s voices to eliminate the toxic chemicals that harm our health and communities. Imagine that! Plan to join us because our health matters – men, women, and children! This show made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.
