Chemical Policy Reform
The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (LCSA) passed in June of 2016. In the wake of its passage, we shifted our advocacy efforts to focus on the EPA’s implementation of the legislation.
Breast Cancer Plan
In 2017, BCPP launched a collaborative project to develop a Comprehensive Breast Cancer Primary Prevention Plan for California (Breast Cancer Plan). The plan is a new effort to develop a policy platform that uses the best science and policy ideas to stop breast cancer before it starts.
Cancer Free Economy Network
BCPP staff are core leaders of the Cancer Free Economy (CFE) Network, a collaboration of diverse organizations and partners seeking to solve the linked problems of pervasive toxic exposures and surging cancer and other disease rates. CFE Network participants want to align and expand existing efforts into a shared system-wide strategy to get poisonous chemicals out of our bodies, our homes, workplaces, and communities — by getting toxic chemicals out of our economy. CFE is working to shift the current culture of risk reduction to an upstream, primary prevention approach. In addition to serving as part of the overall leadership team, BCPP leads the Communications team as they develop and implement the strategic communications plan for the network.
A Tribute to Jeanne Rizzo
