Our outdated laws on toxic chemicals leave families and children exposed to countless toxins found in everyday household items, like furniture and baby products. These chemicals have been linked to neurological defects, cancer, developmental problems, and impaired fertility.
We need your help to ask North Carolina Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr to co-sponsor the Safe Chemicals Act. The Safe Chemicals Act would protect NC families by requiring chemical manufacturers to prove that chemicals are safe before they go on the market.
The bill has united nurses, pediatricians, teachers, families, and voters across both aisles to come together in support for safer chemicals and healthier families. However, North Carolina Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr have not yet co-sponsored the bill.
Urge your Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr to co-sponsor this important bill today!
I urge you to protect the health of our children and families by co-sponsoring the Safe Chemicals Act. The Safe Chemicals Act would replace our sorely outdated toxics laws by requiring that chemicals be undergo preliminary testing before being placed on the market.

Some chemicals in everyday items -- like furniture and baby products -- have been linked to neurological defects, cancer, developmental problems, and impaired fertility. Many Americans are waking up to the fact that our federal laws are failing to protect our families from toxic chemicals. The issue has strong support from voters across the aisle, which should be reflected in Congress.
Please support healthy children and families and co-sponsor the Safe Chemicals Act today.
