On Tuesday, March 10, 2015 the Environmental Working Group (EWG) will host their Congressional Staff Briefing “Asbestos: Still Legal. Still Everywhere.” The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) is pleased to support EWG and speak at the event. Although this briefing is open only to members of Congress and their staff, we still need your voice to be heard!
Asbestos is responsible for countless deaths around the world, including at least 10,000 each year in the U.S. alone. Many Americans might think it’s been banned, but it has not. We need your voice to help change this reality.
