ALASKA COMMUNITY ACTION ON TOXICS
December 21, 2012

I first learned about Alaska Community Action on Toxics (www.akaction.org) from a member of the local Alaska Native village. She told me about their work locally and all the way to the United Nations for environmental health and justice. This organization is working at many levels for the health of our children. They advocate for safer alternatives to toxic chemicals that are all around us and they even participate in national and international studies to see what chemicals are within us from exposures. I didn't really expect to find an organization like this in Alaska. I'm glad that I did. They also work from an inspired place for the Yupik people of St. Lawrence Island who are dealing with global contaminants as well as those from abandoned military sites on their island. This organization not only provides training and local jobs for villagers with community based research - they also provide opportunities and human rights training so that the villagers can bring their health concerns to the US Government and to the United Nations. Please support them, I do.
