We need systemic interventions to disrupt the inequities that directly influence the health, safety, and lives of our communities.

AND we’re developing a new educational piece that connects the dots between extreme weather conditions caused by fossil fuel production and the disproportionate increases in breast cancer risk for frontline communities. This fact sheet highlights the impacts of the environmental crisis on breast cancer and adds to the mounting evidence that makes it clear: we must phase out fossil fuels immediately.
Each year, nearly 300,000 people are diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in the U.S. More than half of those have no known risk factors, and family history accounts for only around 10 percent. This risk is most acutely carried by communities with the furthest relationship to power and economic resources.
But, together, we can do something about it.
Thank you for your support, commitment, and activism.
