RESEARCH

Understanding how toxic substances in consumer products are impacting communities of color, and/or low income is a concern.  With the help of our toxic chemicals intern, we are working to better understand these challenges through a literature review and subsequent development of resources to inform policy actions related to the revision of federal policies on toxic chemical reform.
