Massachusetts Legislative Priorities for 2021-2022

When it comes to protecting children from toxic chemicals, getting lead out of drinking water, putting a stop to climate change or protecting our most vulnerable – the time is now.

Massachusetts legislators: Take action now to turn off the PFAS tap!

PFAS: The Forever Chemicals

Learn more about PFAS, a class of chemicals that are used to make products grease proof, waterproof and stain resistant. PFAS chemicals have been dubbed “forever chemicals” because they and their breakdown products are extremely persistent, lasting thousands of years or more. Unfortunately, they are also linked to a wide array of serious health problems.

Toxic Flame Retardants

Learn about flame retardants, chemicals that are added to everyday products such as highchairs, car seats, nursing pads, upholstered furniture, carpet pads, nap mats, strollers, electronics (including toys) and many more common household products. Many flame retardants are hazardous to our health. Over time flame retardants escape from the products they are used in and get into the air and dust around us.

“If we learned one thing from 2020, it’s that good public health is the foundation of a strong society. The passage of this bill will contribute to the well being of our most vulnerable as well as all Massachusetts residents."
