Our Working groups

Building Power

SUPPORTING GRASSROOTS ACTION BY/FOR PEOPLE

MOST AT RISK FROM CANCER-CAUSING CHEMICALS

The Building Power Node is a unique collaboration of leaders from labor unions,

Latino environmental justice organizations, and immigrant worker advocates

connecting disproportionately impacted communities (most directly and

heavily exposed to toxic chemicals that cause cancer) with mainstream

environmental health advocacy organizations.

Health & Science

BUILDING A BASE OF COMMITTED HEALTH

PROFESSIONALS, SCIENTISTS AND CANCER ADVOCATES

The Health & Science Node is the “go to place” in the network for scientific data,

fact sheets and customized information about chemicals and cancer.

Market Shift

CREATING INCENTIVES FOR SAFER ALTERNATIVES

AND BUILDING DEMAND IN THE MARKETPLACE

The Market Shift Node is focused on transforming business to reduce exposures in

impacted communities by changing the underlying incentives for companies to

move away from seven classes of cancer-causing chemicals to safer alternatives.

Policy & Legal

APPLYING ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE PRINCIPLES AND

PROTECTING PEOPLE FROM DANGEROUS CHEMICALS

The Policy & Legal Hub team brings its expertise to the center of CFE strategic

discussions. The Hub’s leaders produced a broad suite of relevant, actionable and

ambitious projects that have the potential to significantly increase the Network’s

impact, and have connected all CFE Nodes with policy & legal experts.
