The National Pollution Prevention Roundtable, in partnership with the Sierra Club of Central Florida, and Ethos Vegan Kitchen will be hosting a local community event to gather input on public health and chemical exposure issues.  This “Community Conversation” will take place on Wednesday, May 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Ethos Vegan Kitchen, 1235 N Orange Ave in downtown Orlando.

The goal is to create a national action agenda that will outline how the nation can better protect people from harmful chemical exposures.

Each day, Americans encounter thousands of different chemicals in routine activities. Join us in having a voice in the dialogue about toxics in our communities and how we can better protect people from harmful chemical exposures.  
We are working with the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) as part of the National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures.

 The National Conversation’s vision is that the United States will use and manage chemicals in ways that are safe and healthy for all people.  We invite you to help us generate fresh ideas and share useful strategies to help strengthen the way the United States protects the public from exposure to harmful chemicals. Together we will create an action agenda to help guide us through the process.

Many of you have an interest in environmental and/or public health issues as community activists, first responders, health department officials, business leaders, leaders of faith-based groups, elected officials, planners, and concerned individuals.

We want input from anyone with a personal and/or professional interest in environmental or public health issues.  Join this effort by participating in NPPR’s Community Conversation on May 26, 2010 at Ethos Vegan Kitchen in downtown Orlando.
