Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Briefing on Capitol Hill with Congressman Bobby Rush

Sponsors: NAACP, BlueGreen Alliance and Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families

The NAACP, BlueGreen Alliance and the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families Campaign are pleased to invite you to a briefing with leaders from the civil rights, religious and environmental communities about new legislation to reform the broken and outdated Toxics Substances Control Act (TSCA) of 1976, our country’s primary law to manage dangerous chemicals. Congressman Bobby Rush (D-1st IL) and Congressman Henry Waxman (D-30th CA) recently introduced a discussion draft in the U.S. House of Representatives reforming this statute. We are honored to have Congressman Rush scheduled to kick off the briefing on Wednesday at 10am.

The briefing will include a short tutorial on TSCA, an overview of the bills now moving through Congress to update TSCA and a presentation on the positive impact TSCA reform could have on the health and living conditions of people of color and low income communities across the United States.
