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.

Children’s pink plates and silverware contain chromium, lead and mercury. So does the average pillow. Even a Spider-Man T-shirt and some girl’s dresses contain lead.

Women’s Voices for the Earth carried these “toxic toys” on their Stroller Brigade toward Sen. Max Baucus’ Missoula office on Wednesday.

The brigade, one of 17 events across the country, is pushing for support of the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011, set to be heard by Congress this fall.
