Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

Meet Miah

Meet Miah.

Every day, like you, Miah is exposed to hundreds of different chemicals — from those in the products used to clean our homes and bodies, to the pesticides sprayed in our schools, offices, gardens and playgrounds. And unfortunately, many of these chemicals are linked to serious health impacts like cancer, infertility, asthma and more.

Our health is already impacted by where we work, where we live, what we eat, our access to information, resources, quality of affordable healthcare, as well as our gender, race, income and more. And the added unnecessary exposure from everyday products is further harming the health of our bodies, communities and planet.

This summer, Miah is learning more about where these harmful exposures are coming from, why toxic chemicals are ending up on our shelves in the first place, why WVE fights so hard for safer products — and important actions to take TODAY to take control of our health and the health of our communities.

Tune in on this webpage, or into WVE’s Instagram, Twitter & Facebook, to follow Miah and help them take action to build powerful victories for health and safety. New actions, issues and resources will be featured each week.

Together we can build a safer, healthier future for Miah and for everyone!
