PFAS is a dangerous class of chemicals that has infiltrated almost every aspect of our lives. Companies manufacture PFAS in many products - such as non-stick cookware, cleaning products, food packaging, carpets, and even children's car seats - and dump this dangerous chemical into our rivers, groundwater and drinking water. Exposure to PFAS has been linked to infertility, hormone disruption, respiratory disease, heart attacks, strokes, cancer, asthma, and immune and developmental health problems in children. There is a growing concern around PFAS as they bioaccumulate and are persistent in the environment. It is estimated that 95% of people in the U.S. have traces of PFAS in their blood.
Attend the Annual Membership Meeting and learn what we're doing to advocate for clean and safe drinking water in Michigan.
