The Women’s Foundation of California presents
The Women’s Environmental Health and Justice Bay Area Summit

Do you know that women are disproportionately impacted by exposure to
chemicals and toxins?

Do you know the health impacts of the estimated 85,000 synthetic
chemicals you’re exposed to in your home, workplace and neighborhood?

Do you know that low-income women, children, and communities of color
are especially affected by toxic contamination?

You’re invited to participate in a community summit to expand the
debate on environmental health and justice. Learn about what can be
done in California to prevent public exposure to harmful chemicals.
