REGISTER NOW for “Should You Drink That? The Unfolding Story of PFAS in Our Lives,” our free online webinar to be held on October 4 at 6 pm.
Thank you for taking the time to answer this short survey about PFAS (survey link). The survey will help us understand the interests of our audience, and includes links for you to learn more about PFAS in our lives.
On October 4, LWV UMRR will host a panel discussion on PFAS. Join us as our presenters help us understand how PFAS have become a big part of our lives – present in food packaging, household products and drinking water – and what we know about how they affect our health. As awareness of PFAS contamination grows, communities are struggling to cope with tainted drinking water while engaging in advocacy to increase public awareness and bring about constructive change. Learn what the federal government and states are doing to establish safe standards for drinking water and ban the use of PFAS in manufacturing. Most importantly, learn what you can do to help protect yourself, your family and your community.
