Consumer Confusion

Invite you to participate in a Community Forum on Toxic Chemicals in Consumer Productson February 22, 2012

Have you ever wondered...

• How did harmful chemicals find their way into things like baby bottles or toys?

• Why does "product safety" always leave out workers and the communities where they're manufactured?

• How new regulations to reduce toxic chemicals in products might impact you/your community?

Please join us on Wednesday, Feb. 22nd in Fresno to find out how to improve rules being developed by the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to reduce exposure to toxic chemicals and create safer products, and to voice your concerns about toxics in your community!

We'll have a workshop for groups to learn more, followed by lunch, and a dialogue with the Director of DTSC. Community Forum Details
