ADAO and CVAV are overwhelmingly excited with the response we have seen to our North American Petition for the Elimination of Asbestos Disease.  As of today, we have more than 500 individuals and 40 organizations supporting the petition!

We are off to a great start, but more needs to be done in order to get President Obama and Prime Minister Harper to heed our message. If you have not signed the petition yet, please visit our petition site and lend your voice to the fight. If you have already signed on, please encourage three friends or family members to do the same. Let’s stand up once and for all to stop the mining, exportation, and use of asbestos in North America!

In unity,

Linda Reinstein
