Upholding Democracy

A conversational guide to promoting accountability for public health

It is estimated that one in two women and one in three men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, and research points to chemicals in our environment as important–and preventable–risk factors.


What are your elected representatives doing about it?

For too long, the relationship between pollution and community health has been ignored, especially when it comes to Black, Brown, Indigenous, and low-income communities.


COVID-19 has shed a bright light on the consequences of putting profits over people: Our health and our lives.


It’s time for local, state, and federal officials to put health first and protect communities whose lives are being disproportionately impacted by pollution, toxins, & toxic chemicals.


We created this guide to assist you in holding them accountable for decreasing and preventing harmful environmental exposures in your community. 


Download the CFE Network guide on how to talk to elected officials and community leaders about protecting our communities from pollution, toxins, and toxic chemicals, and making public health a priority for all. This guide can be used and shared by 501(c)(3) organizations — and anybody else! — during the elections and throughout the year.
