Here’s the latest on our unabashed and intersectional advocacy work.
In the month of May, alongside our coalition partners, we actively supported:
It’s time we stop fueling breast cancer. We deserve to play, work, live, and breathe comfortably on our planet.
Credible media companies report that this summer is going to be one of the hottest in many areas around the nation. In fact, last week, State Farm, the largest homeowner insurance provider, revealed they would stop selling new home insurance policies in California because of the wildfire-fueled crisis. These extreme weather conditions are a result of our rapidly changing climate. Burning fossil fuels, which include oil, coal, and gas, releases carbon dioxide and other harmful chemicals into the environment. As highlighted in our Why We Must Stop Fossil Fuels resource, the use of fossil fuels not only contributes to climate change but might also increase our risk of developing breast cancer.
Whether it’s environmental exposures from fossil fuels, pesticide use, or PFAS in our personal care products and beyond, the Breast Cancer Action team is able to connect the dots on legislation across a range of issues and work toward stopping this disease before it starts.
As always, thank you for supporting this work and taking action with us toward the goal of a world without breast cancer.
