For years, reproductive health has been on the decline while chemical production has increased by a third. Mounting evidence links exposure to many commonly used chemicals with a host of reproductive health problems including birth defects, early puberty, reproductive cancers, and infertility. Fortunately, Congress has introduced long-awaited chemical policy reform legislation.

 

Please join Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-CO) and a panel of distinguished speakers to learn why chemical policy reform is a reproductive health issue, why we need reform now, and what you can do about it.
