UPDATE: The Washington Senate has passed the HEAL Act. On to the House!
We have a tremendous opportunity right now to help elevate the importance of environmental justice in our collective work for climate solutions.
The Healthy Washington For All (HEAL) Act would require a range of state agencies to consider environmental justice in their work, and create a unified definition and mapping mechanism to do this.
Please email your legislators today and ask them to pass the HEAL Act.
Where you live, work, your income, race or language ability should not determine your health outcomes. Yet people across our state experience high exposures to pollution based upon where the live and work, impacting their well-being and shortening their lives.
Lawmakers can choose a healthier future for ALL of Washington by passing the Healthy Environment for All (HEAL) Act.
Today, can you please email your legislators asking them to pass the Healthy Environment for All (HEAL) Act to ensure we prioritize communities most impacted by pollution in our state?
Passing the HEAL Act will improve environmental health conditions for all Washington residents, prioritizing areas where communities are suffering the most from pollution.
Together, with your help, we can ensure a healthier, more equitable future for all of Washington.
