In order to plan an effective campaign, residents must understand the environmental threats in their community and what they can do about them. You probably have a lot of questions. Am I alone or is my whole community affected? How do we prove that toxic pollution has caused the health problems? Are there doctors that specialize in this kind of illness? What will happen if I come forward?
We recommend that if you are exposed to chemicals or pesticides, seek medical attention right away. Try to document your exposure and that of your neighbors in writing. And use some of our tools and guides to help you.
