Why We Do What We Do: The Children’s Health Defense California Team is devoted to the health of people and our planet. Our mission in California is to end the childhood health epidemics by working aggressively to eliminate harmful exposures, hold those responsible accountable, and establish safeguards for all children in California so this never happens again.
The California chapter of Children’s Health Defense focuses on advocacy and legal issues to remedy the health of California’s children.
We do what we do in California for many reasons. Some of us have children who have been injured. Some of us have seen an injustice and feel the need to step in where others fear to tread. Some of us are focused on the demand for scientific integrity, others on improving the health of this, and future, generations. Some of us are eager to help any way we can. But the one thing we all share is our passionate belief that we have public health policies and practices that are harming our children. For the future good health of our children and planet, we call for more research and transparency. Please join our movement.
