Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities, particularly communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

NEW REPORT — EXPOSED: Ingredients in Salon Products & Salon Worker Health and Safety

Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE) drives action towards a future free from the impacts of toxic chemicals rooted in gender justice alongside those historically and presently ignored by the environmental health movement by leveraging an intersectional solidarity approach based on our expertise in research, advocacy and organizing.

WVE envisions a world free from the impacts of toxic chemicals, one where our planet and communities are thriving, one where our gender, race, sexuality, zip code, income level or job does not determine our health outcomes. A world where workers are treated with dignity from our paychecks to our working conditions. In this world, every point in the cycle of production and consumption – from extraction, to processing, to use, to disposal – contributes not just to a less toxic world, but to a thriving world.

Celebrating 25+ Years of Raising Voices!

2020 marked the 25th anniversary of WVE. Launched in 1995 to take on local issues — pesticide spraying, pollution from a nearby container mill, and stopping a proposed gold mine on Montana’s Blackfoot River — today, we lead tens of thousands of advocates in the U.S. and beyond in campaigns to stop toxic chemicals from being distributed to millions through products made for our homes and bodies. We’ve come a long way, and we thank you for your support and advocacy.
